Add a European feel to your Holiday parties this season. Serve up these Authentic Italian Chestnuts roasted or use our “Chestnut Bread Stuffing” recipe for your Holiday turkey.
3 lbs of Imported Italian Chestnuts
How to Roast:
With tip of knife cut a slit through shell across round side of nut. Arrange in a single layer in a shallow pan with slit-side facedown. Bake at 475°F for 20-25 minutes, turning once halfway through baking time- or until outer shell and inner membrane (brown skin) peel easily. While chestnuts are warm, peel off outer shell and inner membrane.
