Chestnuts on an open fire….

The smell of chestnuts roasting on an open fire, or from a cart of a Granada street vendor right now is the very scent of Christmas, it’s just around the corner – like it or not! Local villages here in the Alpujarras have special days where the whole population get together for a mass ‘roast off’ usually with fried donuts and giant pans of migas too. If you see a poster on your travels here for such an event, just turn up to be welcomed like a long lost member of the family – don’t be shy! Here’s a handy wiki link if you decide to do your own….compete with photos and a video too – no excuses now!
