Chestnuts grow in popularity in Michigan

LANSING (WKZO) -- Chestnuts are making a comeback in Michigan.

In the 1950s a fungus wiped out nearly every mature chestnut tree in the country.  However, in the 1990's, a fungus-resistant tree was found and planted all over Michigan.

Growers now harvest over 100,000 pounds of chestnuts a year.  The nuts are not only roasted, but also used in beer, hummus and soup.
