Wood Fired Oven: Roast Chestnuts


Chestnut season is here and my mind turns to wonderful wintry recipes where I can add my own wood roasted chestnuts: chestnut stuffing, butternut squash and chestnut soup, cassoulet, bread and my list goes on. So, this isn’t so much a recipe as making an ingredient for my other recipes.

I simply criss crossed the chestnuts ( otherwise they explode!) and put them into my wood fired oven for 15-20 minutes at about 350-450 F. They should peel reasonably well and then chop up for your recipe.
