How to Roast Chestnuts
1. Score each chestnut's outer shell with an "X".
2. Place on a baking sheet in a single layer.
3. Roast at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
4. Place in a towel and rub together. Then, when cooled, peel off outer shell.
Seems that chestnuts have fallen out of favor as a Christmas delicacy. We hear plenty about them in songs and books, but in my 32 years, I don't think I've ever seen one served - let alone eaten one - during the holidays. Trader Joe's is trying to make it easy to bring the chestnut back. They were selling packages of the nuts and also posted easy to follow instructions adjacent to the nuts (that's where the 5 steps above are from). Sounds pretty simple. But...what to do they taste like?
