"Roasted chestnuts everywhere" Maribor Local Custom Tip by christine.j

Maribor Local Customs: 19 reviews and 31 photos


This was one of my favourite things to eat in Maribor - the roasted chestnuts. I love eating them in late autumn, early winter and in Maribor they were stalls selling them everywhere.

Getting a bag of roasted chestnuts and eating them on a bench at the bank of the river Drawa was making the best of both - the chestnut season and the unusually warm November weather.

I bought a large bag of chestnuts to take home and we had a wonderful chestnut cream for dessert back home. A great recipe, but peeling the chestnuts just takes too long - that's not something we'll have very often. Most recipes I looked up simply said "buy frozen chestnut cream".
After I've been peeling chestnuts for at least three hours I knew why.

But the cream turned out be very good, so it was worth it.
