I have finally had roasted chestnuts! They weren't roasted on an open fire, but hey. Cowboy found a recipe online and roasted them in our oven, and we ate them when they were still warm, as if we were in a Sherlock Holmes story or a Christmas song.

I'd like to try some that were roasted over a fire, as they're supposed to get a smoky flavor going on. These were pretty good, though. They smelled just like baked ham, and tasted a little like it too. The only thing I didn't care for was their texture, which was akin to baked potato, and as we all know, I am not so much a fan of potatoes.

But still, I have now had roasted chestnuts, which I happen to think is quite cool.


  1. Hah! My dad once tried to make roasted chestnuts (this is over 20 years ago) and he put them in the microwave... and they exploded. I'm not talking minor explosion either, but full on grenade in the microwave explosion. My mom, me, and Laura all thought it was rather hilarious.

    I'm glad yours did not explode and that you got to try more than chestnut shrapnel!

  2. I should add that no, he did not give those doomed chestnuts any air vents prior to exploding. Just threw them in whole! :-D


Agree or disagree? That is the question...
