Buttery Roasted Chestnuts in Foil

Posted: Updated:

Ingredients:

2 pounds fresh unshelled chestnuts

2-3 sprigs rosemary

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

2 teaspoons (or more) kosher salt

1 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg

Freshly ground black pepper

Method of Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place a large sheet of foil on a rimmed baking sheet. Place chestnuts, flat side down, on a work surface. Using a utility knife or a sharp paring knife, carefully cut through the shell on the rounded side of each chestnut to score an X. Soak in a bowl of hot water for 1 minute (this helps them steam while roasting).

2. Drain chestnuts and pat dry; place in a medium bowl. Add rosemary, butter, 2 teaspoons salt, and nutmeg.

Season with pepper and toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange chestnuts in a single layer in center of foil (a few might overlap) and gather up edges of foil around chestnuts, leaving a large opening on top.

3. Roast until the peel begins to curl up and chestnuts are cooked through, 30-45 minutes, depending on size and age of nuts.

4. Transfer chestnuts to a platter, using a spatula to scrape in any butter and spices with them, and toss to coat. Season with more salt, if desired. Serve hot or warm.
