The chestnut croquette was made using chestnuts, which are a symbol of Autumn. Besides sweet chestnuts, we used potatoes and sweet potatoes to give it a slightly sweet taste. Also, since it is shaped like a chestnut, it makes a very cute croquette.
I think I have talked about this before, but Japanese pears and western pears (La France Pears) are very different, the former somewhat resembling an apple in taste and appearance. But they are still delicious.
