Oven Roasted Chestnuts Recipe

Every holiday season, you sing about chestnuts roasting on an open fire. But, have you ever actually roasted Chestnuts?  Aha, I thought so. This season plan to fresh roast chestnuts, using this oven roasted recipe.

Roasted Chestnuts Ingredients:

  • raw chestnuts

  • water

  • melted butter, optional

How to Make Oven Roasted Chestnuts:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Use a sharp knife to cut an "X" into the shell of each chestnut. It is important to pierce the shell, or the chestnuts can explode while roasting.

  3. Place chestnuts in a shallow pan in a single layer.

  4. Place a little water in the bottom of the pan.

  5. For a buttery taste, drizzle melted butter over the tops of the chestnuts.

  6. Roast chestnuts in the oven for 25 minutes.

  7. Remove from oven and put into a towel(they are hot).

  8. Squeeze the towel to crush the shells.

  9. After the chestnuts are warm enough to touch, remove the nuts from the shells.

  10. They are delicious eaten warm.

  11. Store any leftover nuts in the refrigerator.
