Chestnuts Roasting






Roasting Chestnuts in an Oven
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Clean off chestnuts off with a white paper towel.

Use a sharp paring knife to cut an X into one side of each chestnut. This allows steam to escape and keeps them from exploding as they're heated.
Arrange chestnuts on a baking sheet or in a shallow pan, with the cut sides up.

Roast in oven for 15 to 25 minutes, or until chestnuts are tender and easy to peel.
Peel the nuts when they are cool enough to handle, and enjoy.
xo happy holiday roasting!

  18. I love dried fruit, candy and nuts, so they all look amazing. But maybe my favorite is the 6-Section Assorted Nut Platter. This stuff is so fun to have around during the holidays. Yum!

    I don't know why I think of fudge as a holiday recipe, but we always have it around Christmas, so I do. Here's my favorite fudge recipe:

  22. Ooh, thank you for this chestnut recipe - I've always tried roasting before & I think my problem is I set the temp. too low!
