Organic Chestnuts

Nothing compares to the smell of roasted chestnuts filling your home during the holiday season. Incredibly easy to prepare, enjoy its hearty, satisfying and fleeting flavor. Enjoy them while they last.

Chestnuts are highly perishable. Be sure to keep them refrigerated inside a brown paper bag. They can keep this way for up to 2 weeks.

  • Fresh California grown organic chestnuts
  • To Roast: Soak chestnuts in water for an hour. Pre-heat oven to 375 F. Score the round side of each chestnut (this will prevent the chestnuts from exploding from the pressure as they roast). Arrange on a baking sheet and roast until the skins have pulled back (about 20-25 min). Peel by hand.

Favor was very good

Roasted them at 425 for 25 to 30 minutes so that the inner skin easily peeled off

Variable Quality - Disappointing - But Great Follow-up Customer Service!

My husband and I are huge fans of Frog Hollow Farm and have been long time customers ever since we first ate their glorious fruit over 25 years ago. Unfortunately, the California Chestnuts we just purchased were far too variable in quality for both the price point and to be worthy of the Frog Hollow name. About 30% were moist, sweet and delicious (i.e. Frog Hollow-worthy!), 40% were more starchy and flavorless than they should be if they were truly fresh (i.e. "acceptable, not great"), 20% were dried out and so hard that you couldn't bite into them (i.e. OLD) and the last 10% were outright bad (moldy, rotten, etc.).

The good news is that when we called to let the folks at Frog Hollow know, they immediately put us in touch with their Culinary Director -- Mario -- who personally saw to it that since they were already sold out of possible replacements, we were issued a prompt refund.

So, the bad news? Our chestnuts were a big disappointment The good news? Frog Hollow stood by the quality of their goods and handled this issue like the champs that they are.
