I have two trees loaded with chestnuts. My grandfather, who was from Sicily, would always roast his chestnuts this way...I remember them as a child smelling really good. Hope you enjoy!

My Italian father used to roast chestnuts on the wood stove. While these are good, they are not as good as those. However, since I do not have a woodstove, I will continue to make them this way. Thanks for posting Leah Marie and Merry Christmas.


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Place an "x" in the chestnut.
  3. Place chestnuts in an old aluminum pie pan.
  4. Sprinkle salt over chestnuts.
  5. Roast chestnuts in the oven for about 15 minutes.
  6. Remove cover and enjoy!
