Last week, I threw a bit of a curveball and gave chestnuts in the share. For those of you who are still unsure on what to do with them, below is an easy recipe to roasting chestnuts and also a video.
Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in the middle.
Cut an X in rounded side of each chestnut with a small sharp knife. Roast chestnuts, cut side up, in a shallow baking pan until shells curl away from nutmeats, 20 to 30 minutes.
Wrap hot chestnuts in a kitchen towel and squeeze gently to further loosen shells. Let stand, wrapped, 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
