Chestnuts Roasting on an open fire.

Well, how about chestnuts just roasting?

Here’s a quick and easy recipe for roasting chestnuts in the oven:

1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
2. On the flat side of the chestnut, cut a large X with a sharp paring knife to the skin.
3. Place your pared chestnuts on a shallow baking pan. Roast in oven for 30 minutes and shake pan to rotate chestnuts for even roasting.

Peel chestnuts as soon as they are cool enough to handle, because once they cool completely, they will be difficult to peel. Enjoy!

And, did you know that in Europe, Asia, and Africa, chestnuts are often used as a substitute for potatoes?
