    On the first snowy day, get the outdoor fire-pit going, Put on Dean Martin's version of the song, and sing along while enjoying the season! NOTE: You will need a cheap frying pan

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Take a cheap old frying pan, and using a hammer and large nail, or drill bit, make about 10 holes in the bottom.
    2. 2
      Put an X in the skin of each chestnut. Heat pan over flame. Add chestnuts and using a spray bottle, spray with water.
    3. 3
      Return to flame, shake pan slowly and constantly for about 15 min., occasionally spritzing with more water. (will require more yuletide songs).
    4. 4
      Place chestnuts into large metal bowl, sprinkle with salt, and toss. Place chestnuts into 8 small brown bags, sprinkle a dash more salt into bag, and serve. (or sell em on the street corner for a nickel like they did in the ol' days)!

      Thanks for the recipe, we've done this over a fire but you have to be careful they don't burn. I love roasted chestnuts anytime but if you are in a pinch cut an x in the skin and nuke them in the microwave for about 20 seconds and they are delicious that way too.
