While we love to experiment with new ways to prepare chestnuts, we found early on that there are four easy, fundamental methods that we continually come back to: microwaving, roasting in the oven, roasting over a fire, and boiling. When we first got started, we scoured the internet for how-to’s and ultimately found that WikiHow had everything we needed to know, so we felt it best to share what’s always worked for us.
We’ve all heard about chestnuts roasting on an open fire, but how often has that actually been a holiday activity? For us it’s become a staple, so we’re here to help bring your families and friends together for this cozy, delicious (and easy!) treat that can be prepared in a traditional chestnut pan over an open fire or in the oven- it’s up to you.
