A Japanese chestnut in “underwear”.
The kuri, Japanese chestnut is not like the chestnut I knew in France. The first time, I was very disappointed because I expected a pronounced chestnut flavor… It’s closer to a potato. If you don’t compare, it’s good too. You can roast them. Don’t forget to slash the shell before, for your safety. I roast mine in the oven-toaster because I don’t want to make a fire in the fireplace… that I don’t have. That works well too.
The flesh is more yellow… but that varies.
