HOW TO ROAST CHESTNUTS

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Select fresh chestnuts that are heavy, glossy and firm, with smooth shells.
3. Using a paring knife cut a small cross on one side of each shell to allow steam to escape and to make nuts easier to peel.
4. Place nuts in a single layer in a heavy oven-proof skillet or roasting pan. Roast 15 to 20 minutes.
5. Wrap hot chestnuts in a towel and squeeze to crush the shells. Keep nuts wrapped for 5 minutes before removing. Shell the chestnuts by removing both the hard outer shell and the thin brown skin inside. Careful not to burn your fingers.
7. Enjoy !
