CHESTNUTS (栗)


This week, we have been picking up chestnuts on the road in our neighbourhood 
during our daily walk in the morning.  
Chestnuts fell down on the road, and some of them were eaten 
by some wild animals (wild boars or badgers?), 
and we got the rest.  


今週は毎日の朝の散歩で
ご近所の道で栗を拾いました。
栗が道路に落ちて、それを野生の動物
(たぶんイノシシかアナグマ?)が食べ、
残りを私たちが拾います。

My wife made sweet-boiled chestnuts, 
and today I enjoyed them with ice cream and bean jam.  
It tasted very good.  

家内が栗の甘露煮を作って、
今日はアイスクリームとあんと一緒にいただきました。
とってもおいしかった。

  1. There's something extra scrummy about foraged food, isn't there!
