Roasted Chestnuts

Roasted Chestnuts

Chestnuts are a popular item during the holiday season and can be found in most large supermarkets or produce stores. Roasted chestnuts happen to be one of my favourite street foods. We spent New Years Eve at home with our newborn, we rented a few movies and my husband prepared this as our late night snack.

  • 1 lb chestnuts
Turn the oven on to broil. Wash and dry the chestnuts, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, set aside. With a sharp knife, make an X or a long slit on the chestnuts. Place them on the baking sheet and broil for about 10 minutes or until the shells look slightly charred, remove them from the oven and turn them and cook the other side for about 5 minutes. The peeled chestnuts should be soft. Serve them hot from the oven.

  • I just made roasted chestnuts and brussels sprouts as part of dinner tonight, but they sure didn’t come out as whole pieces as yours did.

    Hello Linda, the kind and freshness of chestnuts play a role in how easy the shell comes off. Like hard boiled eggs, the peel is harder to remove when they are very fresh. If you make them again you might want to try to soak them in room temperature water for a few hours before cooking.
