XMas Bucket List
I remember back at Christmas time when I was just a small boy, e and my family would always visit the local German marketplace and it was fantastic. Brockwurst sausages, all the different cheeses and of course the roasted chestnuts. Now I realise that it isnt a German specific custom to have roast chestnuts, but its the place I remember having them from, and they were delicious. If you have ever walked past them and thought yuck you do not know what you are missing, then again if you are allergic to nuts its probably best to stay from these. If there is a German market around your area, or even close by, at this time of year then I would say go, go and enjoy the festivities and whilst you are there look out for those roast chestnuts. There is also the option of buying your own fresh chestnuts from the local supermarket in which case you can cook them yourself, needless to say an open fire actually IS the best way to cook them in my honest opinion, I have also cooked them in a traditional oven and they tasted just fine. Another Christmas tradition and one you should try out for sure, maybe you could even introduce it in with number 9 on this list and kill two birds with one stone! (three birds if you include the turkey).
