Seasonal Fruit 1

Last 3rd of August I showed that typical Summer Seasonal Fruit. Now, in Autumn (Fall), Seasonal fruit it's of course different. I love open air markets and this morning I passed through a very big one at Porta Palazzo in Torino. So here there are chestnut and japanese persimmon :-)

Lo scorso 3 di Agosto pubblicai una foto raffigurante quella che può considerarsi frutta di stagione estiva. Ora, in Autunno, la frutta di stagione è naturalmente altra. Mi piacciono i mercati rionali e questa mattina ho avuto modo di passare nel maggiore a Torino, quello di Porta Palazzo. Ecco quindi castagne e kaki :-)

Great looking persimmons and chestnuts and the price is very good too. This week I have market and food related photos on my blog. A very fun thing to do.

A friend of mine that lives in north Florida sent me some of their local persimmons(the size of an egg) and his home grown chestnuts. The chestnuts were the the biggest ones that I ever saw. Now I see yours are also that big.

Oh I love going to the farmers market. I have not seen chestnuts here. I am glad I read your Italian translation because I was trying to explain to my mom that I saw persimons and a recipe to use them. I could not make her understand what I was talking about. Next time, I'll just tell her "kaki" (same word in French). :)

Fabrizio, hope you had a great holiday time:)
Does anybody buy chestnuts and cook them? I haven't ever eaten it, but some people say they like potato in taste.

Hello Fabrizio, I have never had a chestnut or a persimon!
We have a very poor "farmers market" here in Providence; only one day a week.
I like your shot - Fall is coming.

Just wanted to stop by and say HI. Sorry for not visiting. I've been so busy lately. Am not even getting enough sleep. *yawn*
Nice photo of the seasonal fruit market.

Nothing says autumn like chestnuts...
Like Kate, I'd like to know how you prepare them (besides "roasting on the open fire" ;-))

Fabrizio Zanelli said...

fénix, I've just noticed we published market photo quite together :-) -- BTW, your photos, are very beautiful a nd really well detailed

eliane, I must admit the searching how kaki is in English, I felt astonished to see how different is from European name. It should be interesting to know how the story of both names.

nikon, I'm sorry you never tasted both: chestnut and persimmons. They're both nice :-(

lavinka, eheh "Mniam" here is "Gnam" (different kind of spelling but same pronounciation :-)

ming, your lack of time dedicated to sleep, is my problem too (actually it's 2:27am and tomorrow I have to get up at 6:08)... So please, don't say sorry. I feel guilty myself too not having enough time to visit all blogs I would :-(

kate and Isabella, especially in Torino chestnuts are roasted on open fire at streets corner (of course I will take a photo of them) but, at home, people boil them too. Yes Kate, they remind to potato but are a bit more... Sweet.

1st of October marks the start of the roasted chestnut sellers in Zurich (Heisse Maronni). This year they were greeted with temperature in the 20C's, so not many customers yet! I love the whole sense and smell that these give to autumn and winter, and of course they are delicious

I like chestnuts both steamed and roasted. Here in Korea, we have persimmon in three different ways: normal(hard), juicy and dried. My taste differs depending on the occasion.
