Plan to Roast Chestnuts for the holiday season. Its very easy to do.

Ingredients

1/2 pound chestnuts (more or less to suit your needs)

Directions

Method One

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Find the flat side of eachchestnut and cut a large X with a sharp paring knife all the way through the skin.

Place chestnuts on a shallow baking pan and place in the oven to roast for about 30 to 40 minutes, depending on size of nuts. Shake pan several times to rotate chestnuts so they will cook evenly.

Peel roasted chestnuts as soon as they are cool enough to handle. Once they cool completely, they are difficult to peel. However, they may be reheated briefly to aid in peeling.

Method Two

Chestnuts may also be roasted on the outdoor grill. Watch carefully and turn them often.

Chestnuts can be done in small amounts on the stovetop of a gas stove. Place on top of a flame-tamer and cover with a deep lid. Roast over low heat until done, about 10 minutes, turning often to cook evenly.
