Going Conkers for Chestnuts
Mmmm. They good.
This year, I decided to boil instead of roast and it was much easier and the chestnuts turned out moister (more moist?). I cut the cross-hatch then boiled for about 10 min. The ones where I had perforated the pellicle (that inside softer shell) while cutting were easier to peel. I could have then sauteed them in butter or something, but they disappeared down me chestnut hole.
Conkers is a game that you can play with chestnuts. My dad was champion of the Bronx back in the day. Take that, Xbox!
