We’ve had a good crop of pumpkins this year.  They’ve grown out of the vegetable patch and climbed up into the hedge, hanging like bright orange lanterns in advance of Halloween.

After a gusty few days, chestnuts have begun falling from the trees and are lying around in the grounds, waiting to be collected……

Yesterday I invented a delicious, easy dessert with chestnuts.  After boiling them and removing the two skins, many of them were crumbly so I just add a grated apple and bingo! The moisture of the apple complimented the texture of the chestnuts.

It was a delicious, seasonal way to end the meal 🙂

Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus restrictions, the 2020 editions of the annual Chestnut Fairs in La Garde Freinet and Collibrières have been cancelled.
