It is important to realize that we pick and select our chestnuts carefully. Henceforth, a “metato”(covered roasting chamber/house) dries our delicious chestnuts for 40 days at a constant temperature of 86°F with a wood burning fire. See Metato: https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metato . The long drying process removes all humidity retained inside the chestnut leaving you with a delicious, sweet and unforgettable, smoky flavor!
Eventually, we hand select and hand pack the chestnuts once dried. Furthermore, the dry chestnuts do not contain any kind of preservatives. Giannetti Artisans’s Dry Chestnuts are a true all natural product. Keep in mind however, that our chestnuts are a seasonal item. Unfortunately, they may not always be available throughout the year.
