Warm your soul with roasted chestnuts!

Roasting chestnuts is so simple and rewarding!  I hope you try this easy as pie recipe!  I was first introduced to Chestnuts when I was just waist high.  My mom brought them home at Christmas and we roasted them up in our olive green electric oven.  In cold Des Moines, Iowa, they were a warm treat on a winter day.  The sweet nutty flavor of the chestnut - will keep you coming back every December.

Begin with whole in the shell chestnuts.

Using a serrated knife, cut an "X" into the rounded side of the nut.

Place on a foil lined cookie sheet.
Roast on the lowest rack in your oven.

Preheated Oven 425 degrees.
15-20 minutes or until the "X" peels back.

Remove from the oven and wrap in a towel for 5 minutes.

Peel back the outer shell and inner skin and eat the warm nut.

Serve with cheddar cheese cubes.

Red wine pairs nicely with chestnuts.

Dig in!
