SEA--where to buy peeled chestnuts

MsMaryMc | Dec 9, 2007 09:31 PM

I love braised chestnuts, want to serve them at Christmas dinner, but the little suckers are just too much trouble to peel. I'd heard you could buy them peeled and frozen in Asian markets, but I looked at Uwajimaya and couldn't find them. Any other suggestions? Frozen would be good, vacuum-packed will do. The ones in jars (unsweetened, not the candied ones) look less appealing to me--has anybody used them? Are they anything like fresh, or mushy and past their prime, like I'm imagining?
