Roasted Chestnuts

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. chestnuts
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • salt, to taste
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Cut a 1/2 inch crisscross on the flat side of each nut. Be sure to cut through the shell to prevent the nut from exploding. Place the nuts in a shallow baking pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Allow to cool and peel off the shell.

Place nuts in a skillet with butter and saute over high heat until the butter is melted and the chestnuts are well coated. Place skillet in oven and roast until they are golden on top. Sprinkle with salt and cinnamon.

How high do I put the oven at, and for how long does it take to roast chestnuts?

What recipe do you use to 'roast' chestnuts? I want another alternative to the 'open fire' (there's a song that refers to roasting chestnuts on an open fire) method. :-)

I just bake them in the oven. Make an X on the flat side, put them on a baking sheet and cook 350° for about 15-20 minutes. I stir them around once in a while to be sure they cook evenly. When they are done, just shell them at the X. The shells will be HOT. (10/14/2005)

I take a sharp knife and slice into each chestnut. Then put them in a fry pan and turn on the stove, stirring frequently. Simple. (10/16/2005)

Roasting Chestnuts

There are those "homeovens" like a pot with a hole in the middle, and a lid (you mnay use it inside the oven,lidless, to make an easy-cutcake), and we roast chestnuts, peabuts,mand dried broad beans in that. Alternatively,one of those grill-type electric ovens.

Remember to slash a cross-cut at the top so the chestnuts won't explode with the pressure build-up.

Roasting Chestnuts

You can also do them in the microwave... Just cut a slit and lay them on a paper towel put in for about 2-3 minutes be careful they do blow up (Hint: if they do blow up it usually means there is a worm inside, make sure you look). My nana did this for us every year... (10/22/2005)
