I usually just keep mine in a cool dark cupboard - never enough room in the fridge.

 

Remember SWEET CHESTNUTS are fine - the ones you'd buy from your supermarket - HORSE CHESTNUTS ie CONKERS are not safe.

conkers and chestnuts are completely different but look very simular have you ever eaten a horse chestnut roasted on an open fire or in the oven because you CAN'T EAT CONKERS!!!

Supp, you could put them in the oven ?

 

I really havent a clue how you cook them, or even if you have to ?

 

On another note - isnt Xmas fab :) So many goodies in the isles for the parrots, but no brazil's in shells @ Sainsburys. I asked why they didnt have any, but I drew a blank when I mentioned my parrots prefer them in the shell :)

 

Is it a public safety issue ? People getting maimed by flying brazil shells when you crack them 0_o

we put a little slit in the outer layer and put them in the microwave to cook them. if you dont slit them 1st they will blow up !
