Maybe you can just use another type of raw nut instead?
You can just use another type of raw nut instead.
I looked it up after seeing this recipe (and noticing that her other two recipes she'd posted were not raw) and it seems like it's only the skin that is problematic, while the meat of the actual nut is ok, though bitter and very starchy (like potatoes, rather than like a traditional nut). But I have no personal experience eating them raw. Also, there are different kinds of chestnuts, with some being edible and others not.
Yeah, everything I've read about chestnuts says they have to be cooked?
How do you prepare the raw chestnuts? From what I've heard, it's really difficult to separate the meat from the skin (which is toxic from the high levels of tannin).
