Tree chestnut not water or horse chestnut for Passover Haroset

Last year I couldn't find real chestnuts to make the Venetian or Luzzatto Family Haroset I sometimes serve at Passover. I know the holiday is a month away, but some stores start loading up their goods around now. I just found two brands of the new sort - cooked, peeled, vacuum packed (so easy!) - in my store (Toronto). Quick check of Wegmans and Krogers (where I used to shop) have them, so probably also in other US stores.
Great: roasted, ready to eat, GF, vacuum packed. Enjoy!

Another spot to check - if you have a Korean grocery store near you, they will most likely have chestnuts as well. Those are a very popular snack there, and Korean chestnuts also tend to be just a bit larger than ours here.
