Matthew Parker's Decoder #2012-12

Just like the Christmas song says, you really can roast chestnuts over an open fire . . . and they’re good for you, too! Chestnuts provide about 65 percent of the Vitamin C you need in a day—and they’re the only nuts that contain this vitamin. But if you do roast them, don’t forget to score (cut a slice into) them first. Otherwise they might explode when they get hot!

Look for another secret message next month!
