Question: How do I store my Colossal Chestnuts?

Answer: Get a plastic storage bin with lid. Poke a few holes in the bin and lid so it is not completely sealed/airtight. Find/buy dry sand and pour into bin. Bury your chestnuts in the sand, close lid, and then store in a cool storage area. This way if you want a few chestnuts to cook, you can grab what you need but still keep some for future eating/cooking.
