Servings 6 servings


  • 2 cups Chestnuts


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees and get out a large rimmed baking sheet. 
  • Take a sharp pairing knife and slit a line through the nut's skin horizontally on the flat side of the nut. This will make it easy for the nut to crack open while roasting. 
  • Roast the chestnuts for 20 minutes or until they start to pry open (some larger nuts take a bit longer to crack open). Crack open with your hands, discard skin, and enjoy the golden brown nut in the center.
  • Roasted chestnuts can be stored at room temp for a few days.
