- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- Clean Chestnuts.
- Use a sharp paring knife to cut an X into one side of each nut. This keeps the Chestnuts from exploding in the oven.
- Arrange Chestnuts on a baking sheet or in a shallow pan, with the cut or pricked sides up.
- Roast in oven for 15 to 25 minutes, or until nuts are tender and easy to peel.
- Peel the nuts when they are cool enough to handle but still warm, and enjoy.
