    Frozen chestnuts - Does anyone know who stocks them please 29th Nov 10 at 6:21 PM
    In previous years I have always got frozen chestnuts from Waitrose, until last year I couldn't find any. I tried doing my own, it was so fiddly and time consuming (not something I have a lot of) although I do enjoy them especially for Xmas dinner. If anyone spots any please could you let me know who is selling them.
    We have Tesco's, Sainsbury's, Asda, Waitrose, M & S, and Iceland in our town.

    Many thanks in anticipation.

    You can get tins/jars, do you have to have frozen ones?

    The ones in tins and jars always seem to have a brine or liquid which "tastes", although I will resort to them if I have to.
    Thank you

    I managed to get some frozen ones in Iceland of all places last year so that may be worth a try.

    I also saw the ones below in Asda last week and wondered about them too. If Iceland don't have the frozen ones this year I'll try them I think.

    Wow I wouldn't have thought of Iceland - I did a search online but it didn't show them as a stock item.

    Yes I will try the others if I cant findfrozen ones.

    Thank you

    If they're to cook with such as with sprouts or stuffing I found they're just as good as fresh and so easy, obviously they're not the same as ones freshly roasted in their skins just to eat.

    I shop in Morrisons but never thought about looking there doh Had them from Sainsburys other years, will look in our Morrisons thanks

    Merchant Gourmet vacuum packed ones are excellent - Waitrose have them but they sell out sometimes.
