I'm not a Christmas baker. But I miss warm goodness coming from the oven. So I was pleased to roast chestnuts this week with the kids.
This time around I actually looked up directions on-line so we didn't have chestnuts exploding in the oven like last year. I think the lack of theatrics was kind of disappointing for the kids. And although I'm sure these taste nothing like "chestnuts roasting on an open fire" they tasted pretty darn good to Celine and I. Not so much to my younger two. Maybe it's an acquired taste.
What exactly do oven roasted chestnuts taste like? Starchy like potatoes, a little sweeter but not like sweet potatoes. Huh? I'll guess you'll just have to try them yourself. If you don't like them you can always add them to a meal. I chopped and blended the leftovers into our supper pot o' soup.
