Walking across the local market the other day I saw something I don't recall seeing for years ,a bloke selling "Hot Roast Chestnuts " I remember one used to stand on the same corner every winter in Blyth and you could see them on the streets of Newcastle etc:, and if I recall they used to be all from origins abroad , now the only thing I can't remember is the price they where back when ?????, but I do know the price now which is £2 ,not sure what you get for that though...........could be just the one,very large ! .looking on old google the "Hot Chestnut " section it seems I have been missing out as among other things you can hire the actual ovens for your party ,anyone for a roasting ??, probably not me though I never even got to a Fondue party .
