How to prepare and eat Sweet Chestnuts:

  1. Eat fresh using a paring knife to cut off the skin and fibrous covering
  2. Boil - Place sweet chestnuts into a pot with cool tap water. Cover pot while boiling and stir occasionally on medium high for:
    • medium size - 10-12 min
    • large size 15-20 min
      Using a slotted spoon scoop out a few nuts at a time and as soon as they are cool enough to handle, but still hot, cut them in half and pop them out of their skins.
  3. Roast - First pierce the skin to allow hot air to escape while cooking. Use a sharp paring knife to cut a slash or an "X" through the skin, but not the nut meat. The larger the cut the easier it will be to peel.
    • Chestnut Pan - Roast them by shaking the pan over medium heat for 20 minutes.
    • Microwave oven - place a dozen chestnuts around a microwave plate and cook on high for 4 minutes
    • Oven -  Place chestnuts on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with water. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes. Place one uncut chestnut on the sheet with the others. When it "pops" they are ready to eat.
  4. Enjoy!
