Roasted chestnuts (A childhood favourite...)

Chestnuts- I have been crazy about this fall delight since I am a little kid and always look forward for them coming in season. At my grandmas place chestnut trees occur naturally, so we used to collect the chestnuts when they fell off the trees. Free of charge of course. :-) Here in the US, chestnuts mostly get imported and are hence very expensive. Still I could not resist buying some, when I finally saw them in our local grocery store and they were just delicious. At my home chestnuts also belong to the Christmas feast and are made as a side dish. I will be posting the recipe for that next month. Have a nice day..!!


- 1 lb chestnuts or more


Preheat oven to 400 F.
With a sharp knife make a cross-shaped cut in the flat side of the chestnuts. Place onto a baking sheet with cut side facing up and roast for about 20 minutes. Peel off the shell and enjoy. :-)
