Fire roasted chestnuts are actually awesome… fun holiday cook

Recommended Posts

Not sure why it’s taken me so long to try this, but simple chestnuts roasting over an open fire just like the Christmas song is actually delicious.

I went with the rotisserie and basket but you can do it in a cast iron pan over the coals just as well. 
Aim for about 400f/203c direct 
Score the nuts with a pairing knife putting an X on the flat side. This will prevent them from exploding 
Cook for 12 min. Serve immediately with some smoked sea salt. Enjoy
