Around this time in November is very common to eat what we call Castanhas in Portugal. These are little brown fruits that may look like nuts but have nothing to do with it. We normally eat them roasted or baked, it is ever so good. Along with cooking Castanhas we celebrate Magusto. Magusto is a popular party where people get around a fire to roast the castanhas, sing songs and drink some wine with it. This tradition normally has place in Portugal or Galiza. Normally kids celebrate it at school as well in the day of S. Martinho.
My family normally just buys some castanhas and bakes it at home so we can eat it like a dessert. If you haven't try castanhas yet you must do so at some point, it is a really delicious treat as you can see in the picture bellow.
Another fruit that I so like is the pomegranate. My granny always gets to buy some juicy ones at this time of year. I just like it's texture so much. But you probably heard of or have eaten it already...
What about you, what's your favorite Autumn fruit?
