we recently picked up chestnuts from our local grocer for $5/pound

1 ounce or 28 grams is about 60 calories.

Chestnuts have a delicate, sweet and nutty flavor that can be peeled and eaten raw or roasted whole. If roasted whole be sure to score the fruit to prevent exploding. Available fresh, dried, ground or canned.

Other methods include candied, boiled, steamed, grilled or roasted. Dried chestnuts are milled for breads, cakes, pastas or as a thickener for soups, stews and sauces.
