Chestnut

#CYW #Chestnut

6th November 2019

Coming from two trees that hold its name

Horse and Sweet varieties exist

Each Autumn kids can be found playing games with conkers

Sweet fare created from the conkers sibling

Tartlets and pies and they’re even used at the Christmas table

Note however – you can’t eat the conker

Unless of course – you happen to be a squirrel

Though its easier if you find one – to plant it for a new tree.

Chestnut

#CYW #Coloryourworld #Chestnut

Crafted in the branches

High up the tree that holds its name

Every squirrels favourite treat

Stored in trees by the local wildlife

Tough to crack without the knowledge

Noted for its rounded flavour – goes well with Turkey

Understandably – you will see it around Christmas and Thanksgiving

Taken from the tree and roasted for the bird.
