We eat the chestnuts either roasted (usually) or boild and mixed with potates (old fashion). In the old times chestnuts were very important for poor people in Galicia to survive! You can get 1 kg for 1 Euro here! All around Spain they sell roasted chestnuts in the streets so you warm your hands before and youre insides after eating them.

You should put up some spottings from Galicia. So how do you eat the chestnuts? Roasted or boiled?In S. F during Christmas they sell 2 chestnuts for 1 dollar. Ridiculously over priced. But people buy it in the spirit of the season and it really adds to the festivities.
