ROASTED CHESTNUTS

_ give the chestnuts a quick brush or wash to clean them up
_ cut a shallow but long slice into the skin on one side [you want to break through the skin and the thin paper-like membrane under it but not slice the chestnut itself]

_ if you use an electric oven preheat it to 190°C [375°F]
_ place the chestnuts in a single layer on a baking tray
_ roast the chestnuts for 15 to 20 minutes [depending on size]
[they will smell nutty when they are done – but the easiest is to take one out and try it]

_ if you have an open fire or oven get a good fire going
_ wait for the big flames to turn into hot amber
_ place the chestnuts in a single layer in a chestnut pan

_ roast for 15 to 20 minutes [turning once in a while]
[the warmer they get – the more they will open up]

[if they turn charred on the sides that’s fine – it shouldn’t effect the inside for quite a while]

_ prepare a bowl with a moist kitchen towel
_ transfer hot chestnuts to the bowl, cover with the towel and serve immediately
[they are easiest to peel as long as they are still very, very hot]
