ingredient of the month CHESTNUTS
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire is a nostalgic sign of the holidays. Delicious on their own, as a salad topper or in turkey stuffing, fresh chestnuts are available in fall and early winter.
Cut an X on flat side of each chestnut. Arrange on baking sheet in single layer; roast in 400°F oven until shells curl back, nut is soft and skin can be easily removed, 20 to 30 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle; peel away shells and skin.
