Catch the Holiday Spirit by Roasting Chestnuts at Home

Get in the right mood for Christmas by roasting your own chestnuts and enjoy them as a snack or with any kind of festive dish! They're favored for their delicate and slightly sweet flavor. Roasted chestnuts are one of the most famous delicacies you can buy at a traditional German Christmas, but they also taste great when glazed or candied.

How to Prepare Chestnuts Easily

With a sharp knife, slice a large 'X' along the flat side of the chestnuts. Transfer chestnuts to a baking sheet and bake at 200°C/400°F for 15 min., or until chestnuts burst from the incisions. Allow them to cool, then peel the outer shell and remove the inner brown membrane. Enjoy as snack, side, or filling for any kind of winter dish!
