My father, Bob, is a chestnut aficionado. He loves this time of year when they’re sold at the farmer’s market so he can partake. This week I found some and finally, with the completion of our kitchen, he was able to roast these up. I don’t care for chestnuts but for those of you who do… enjoy this super easy and flavorful recipe.
1 lb of chestnuts, with a cut in the top (about 1 inch long)
Pinch of salt
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Set aside a baking sheet. In a saucepan, add your chestnuts, salt and just enough water to cover. Bring to a simmer and then remove from the heat. Drain and place the chestnuts on your baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. Remove and let cool. Peel and enjoy!
