When I was a little girl, I remember my papa cutting chestnuts on Sunday mornings all Winter long. My father's method was a little different, in that he cooked them on top of the stove. He used a metal plate with holes on the bottom.
Here's my papa when I received my confirmation.
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire...
2 lbs brown chestnuts
Sprinkle of water
Large roasting pan
With sharp small knife, make an X cut in each chestnut.
Important: Soak in cold water overnight
Drain, place in roasting pan in 350 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes to one hour. Sprinkle with water.
Check for doneness by piercing with a knife. When the knife goes in easy and the chestnuts are browned on the top and the skin is pulled back, they are done.
They look so delicious!
Thank you, Barbara. They tasted so good, too.
