Roasted Fresh Chestnuts
By Chef Christina Pirello

Ingredients

1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Using a sharp paring knife, cut a small cross into the round side of each chestnut. Lightly oil the surface of each chestnut and arrange on the lined baking sheet.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the crosses pop open and the nuts yield easily to pressure, splitting the skins. Dip your oily fingers in salt and eat the chestnuts.
