Anybody having good luck with chestnuts this year?

vvv03 | Nov 27, 2012 10:55 AM

I'm a huge fan of roasted chestnuts. Last year was an unbelievably good year for the chestnuts in my opinion. Most were meaty, sweet, the "hair" didn't stick to the meat and there were very few mold ones. This year I've bought 3 batches and they're all dry, flavorless and hairy. Bummed! I'm wondering if Italy had terrible weather for chestnuts this year or if I should stop buying them from the Food Coop, which is where I got all my awesome ones last year.
