Roasted Chestnuts

Holidays!  Chestnuts roasting on a open fire…well, how about in the oven instead.  My Father made Roasted Chestnuts every year.  During culinary school, I was lucky enough to get a chestnut knife making it much easier and safer to score them.

The recipe is very simple.  Score each chestnut with a chestnut or a curved paring knife.   Place the cut side up and roast in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes depending on their size.  Remove from the oven.  Hold each chestnut with a clean towel, one at a time, and peel removing the shell and skin.
