Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose, yuletide carols being sung by a choir and folks dressed up like Eskimos….la la la. One of the famous Christmas carols that can be heard playing over the radio and malls. The song which reminded me that it has been a year when I last ate Casta?as, lol
As Christmas is fast approaching, most supermarkets are already selling Christmas Hams, Queso de Bola and Chestnuts or Casta?as, as these foods mark and symbolize the yuletide season. My mom, my husband and I love eating this seed so much. I bought a kilo for us to take pleasure to feast upon.
It was a bit expensive now at Php 240 per kilo, nevertheless it is only this time of the year where it is abundant in the market. I also have these seeds on my table during Christmas and New Year, as the old belief says, it brings prosperity.
