Not long ago I would stop at the chestnut tree outside our tasting room and pick up three pounds of nuts in five minutes.  Today I found three nuts.

Jen over at Tick Warriors threatened to make a savory chestnut pie the other day.  I had never heard of such a thing.

But tomorrow is Wild Tasting Tuesday.  So I made a pie for everyone to sample.  I used Eva’s bell peppers, Haw River Mushrooms, Ashe County cheddar, chestnuts out of the yard, and a far away onion.  I threw in some Fair Game Amber Rum for good measure.

While it is bittersweet to watch the chestnut drop draw to a close, it is good to know that the persimmons are coming.
