Chestnuts cooking/baking tips:
If roasting chestnuts in the oven, cut an X on the shell to allow moisture to escape.
Use whole or half cut chestnuts in stews, casseroles and soups.
Peeled chestnuts are very versatile and can be used for many sweet or savoury dishes including breads, bakes and pan fried. Chestnuts can be peeled before or after cooking.
To peel chestnuts after cooking: Bring whole chestnuts to a boil. Cook on low heat for 45 minutes. Let the chestnuts cool down until they are comfortable to handle, then cut them in half and scoop the inside.
To peel chestnuts raw: Cut off the top and bottom end. Make another cut across the shell (from top to bottom) and peel of the shell.
