Chestnuts!!



I bought a chestnut roaster years ago from Aaron Petersen....now it is at last in use!!

tip- cut a slit in the chestnuts then soak for 15 minutes in cold water, then drain, before roasting.

I tend to boil ours; far less danger.

the cut with a knife and soaking makes them less likely to explode!

Now you have me curious about chestnut roasters! I always cut them but never thought of soaking them first. I usually roast ours on top of the wood stove.
