 My father grows chestnuts but now can't turn them into flour due to nanny state food and health rules


Holy sh!t. That's terrible.

My Stone fruit has 2 peaches, Plums, Nectarines and Apricots. Pear tree has 4 types of Pears. Pretty cool for variety in a small area.

sure, I freeze dry loads of things and pack in mylar. Im still waiting for my hazelnuts to fruit, their succoring great, but as yet Im unsure if I wont just roast and vacuum pack.

I am unsure of the percent moisture on a fresh chestnut, but it should by all means pull all water and some volitiles from the nut while leaving the nut entirely intact, just lighter due to the loss of moisture.

It would be very easy to mill, but very hygroscopic, so at least 4.1mm mylar heat sealed with oxy absorbers would be detrimental I believe.

eta: harvest right sells their smallest units under 1700 I believe, but a jerky dehydrator from any outdoor store for a couple hundred would be a decent substitute, only theres a big difference in the 2 types of end products.

Thanks for that. Even if my dad bought one of those fandangle machines , he would still have spend mega money on building a registered kitchen to be able to process the chest nuts.
