Roasted Chestnuts

Really, I just wanted to share this photo with you (which I have compressed to accomodate for the dial-up connection). Roasted chestnuts are delightfully smoky, nutty, and sweet all at the same time. While I did not sing and yuletide carols whilst I ate these, they were good nonetheless.

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Cut/poke an "X" through the shell of each chestnut with a paring knife. Place on a cookie sheet.
3. Roast for 20-22 mins. The shells will peel back around the X. When cool, peel, sprinkle with sea salt (optional) and enjoy!

Shouldn't these have been roasted on an open fire, with JF nipping at your nose?
