Roasted Chestnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Using a pairing knife, cut two slits along the edge of the nut.
  3. Place in a pot filled with cold water and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat, cover and let them stand for 20 minutes.
  4. Drain and place in a roasting pan in the oven for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool to the touch before peeling (they are easier to peel when they are still warm).
