No time to roast chestnuts? Look for roasted chestnuts in small bags in the produce or international aisle of the grocery store. You will need 2 (100 g each) bags for the recipe.
Roasting Chestnuts: You will need at least 8 oz (250 g) of fresh chestnuts for this recipe. Cut an X in the rounded side of the chestnuts and place on baking sheet. Roast in 400ºF (200ºC) oven for about 30 minutes or until tender and golden on the inside. Let cool slightly and using a tea towel, break skin and peel off. If you end up roasting extra you can freeze them to make the recipe again another time! Or enjoy the roasted chestnuts as a snack.
