    Hi guys,

    I'm not sure if anyone is growing chestnut trees in their neck of the woods. I would love to have one! I did a video on how to roast them on an open fire. It really brings back memories of my childhood roasting them with my dad over the holidays.

    Merry Christmas!

    I had a neighbor who swore Buckeye nuts were chestnuts, and he was eating the dang things. From what I've read, buckeyes should make you sick, as they are mildly poisonous.:eek:

    Tips & Warnings
    The typical dose of horse chestnut extract is 250 mg two times a day, 12 hours apart.
    Buckeye can be used safely for up to 3 months.
    If taking buckeye, always tell the doctor and pharmacist.
    People with bleeding disorders should not take buckeye. It is a blood thinner.
    Do not eat buckeye seeds or nuts. They are poisonous.
    Do not take buckeye if pregnant or lactating.
    Lots of uses I am not familiar with, but the bold part is what I told my neighbor.

    The salve is real good for itchy skin. But, it stinks. My neighbor said he was afraid he would be thrown out of Church if he used it on Sunday.
