1. Wash chestnuts

  2. Use firm chestnuts without any holes (if holes, discard).

  3. Using a small sharp knife, carve an "X" in the flat side of each chestnut.

  4. Place chestnuts in an even layer, "X"-side down, in a Pan (We prefer Cast Iron).

  5. Cook chestnuts over low/medium heat until opened, 20 to 25 minutes.

  6. Peel immediately, using a towel if chestnuts are too hot to touch or place in a cloth tea bag for 15 minutes and then peel.

  7. Sprinkle with salt (we like Maldon Sea Salt Flakes).

  8. ENJOY!
