Advent Challenge, Day 12; Roast Chestnuts

December 12th
Today's recipe is for roasted chestnuts. I love chestnuts, ever since I was a child. However it wasn't eating them that I remember. CONKERS! Thats what I remember. One of my fondest childhood memories was running around collecting bucketfuls of chestnuts, boiling them up, polishing them and pitting them against each other. Nowadays though it doesn't seem to be that big of a pass time at all, which is rather saddening, although you can just collect them and eat them which is just as fun.

1Kg of Chestnuts

1. Heat the oven to 200'C
2. Using a sharp knife,  cut a cross into the skin of each nut. Put into a roasting tin and bake until the skin opens and the inside is tender.
3. Serve, peel away the outer skin and munch on the yummy inner kernel.

Hope you enjoyed this one, check back later for the next. Until then bros, carry on cooking.
