Roasted chestnuts are such a traditional winter treat that there`s a song about them - sing along as you roast chestnuts.
24 uncracked chestnuts
Clean kitchen towel
Preheat oven to 400.
Carve an X into the flat side of each chestnut (otherwise they will explode) and place on the baking sheet. Bake about 30 minutes, until pressing a chestnut cracks the shell open easily.
Wrap chestnuts in a towel until ready to eat. Squeeze open the shell, peel off shell and nut coating, and enjoy.
