It's all about the chestnut!

In North America, when it comes to Autumn and sweet treats I  think things like pumpkin pie, apple pie  etc probably come to mind. Now that November is upon us, many will start to think of Christmas baking. But here in my part of Japan, leaves are just starting to turn, the temperature is in the low 20's (Celsius) or upper teens  and it really feels like fall. And that means chestnuts!  Japanese LOVE chestnuts!  So I gathered some photos from Yahoo shopping to show you how popular chestnut cakes/puddings/sweets are.
