How to Roast Chestnuts at Home

Roasting chestnuts at home is one of the simplest ways to enjoy their delicious flavor. All you need is some chestnuts, a roasting pan, and an oven. Start by preheating your oven to 425°F. Wash the chestnuts before cutting an “X” on their flat side with a sharp knife. Place them in a roasting pan and bake for 20 minutes, turning them over halfway through so that all sides get evenly roasted. Let them cool before peeling off the shells and eating your roasted treats!
