But then what? Is there anything you can put on them? Sugar, salt, spice, something else? Is that all you do, roast them?

Soup or put them in your Brussel sprouts with pancetta

I put mine in my log burner for ten minutes in an old tin. They taste amazing!

Roast them, then peel them and eat them. I love chestnuts

Just cut an X in them before roasting so they don't explode

are they in shells or not?

but anyeay, shallow fried in duck fat or butter with brussel prouts and a pinch of cinnamon is yum.

they are starchy and sweet, a bit like potato but sweeter.

Add them to a mushroom and beef or venison casserole.

Put some in a tray of winter vegetables to roast.

Make a chestnut & prune stuffing, especially good with pork.

Add to pheasant with sultanas, dried figs and Madeira.

Yep. My folks didn't do this when I was little. One shot straight through the oven door. New stove needed right before Christmas.
