  seasoning and serve.

  form of ground flour from which they make cakes, bread, polenta, and
  TIP : Chestnuts are available from October through January. Chestnuts
  should be firm, smooth, full, shiny and vividly brown. To prepare for
  this recipe: make a cross on the flat side of each nut with a sharp
  knife. Roast, boil, or bake until flesh is tender. To peel, parboil
  for 10 minutes, remove inner and outer skin.

  ANNE-STORY: "True Tuscan connoisseurs (of red cabbage) always wait
  until school children begin wearing their wool uniforms that ... that
  presage the arrival of winter. Small wonder, then, that the following
  recipe so successfully pairs this most colorful of cabbages with the
  seasonal harbinger, chestnuts. To best capture the mood, serve it in
  a decorative earthenware casserole with plenty of sturdy bread to
  soak up the sauce."
  SCAN-STORY We "always wait until school children begin wearing their
  wool unison"
  NOTES : Other ways to use chestnuts: Fresh chestnuts can be boiled,
  roasted (stovetop or oven), or grilled (Place in aluminum foil
  packets). Chestnut meats can be combined with vegetable broth and
  baked until soft, then blended with bechamel and served as a side
  dish. Dried chestnuts can be boiled until soft, pureed and plated
  with sauteed greens. Recipe
