- Preheat oven to 220 C (425 F).
- Find the flat side of each chestnut and cut a large X with a sharpe knife, ensuring to pierce the skin.
- Place chestnuts on a shallow baking pan and place in the oven to roast for 35 to 45 minutes depending on the size of nuts. Shake pan several times throughout the cooking process to make sure the nuts cook evenly. You can add salt if you would like. (I opted for no salt)
- Chestnuts are usually ready when the X has started to fold out. Peel roasted chestnuts once they are cool enough to handle.
