Roasted Chestnuts with Brown Butter and LemonDec 11, 2011Posted by guestchefPrint
Despite their holiday ubiquity from a pop-culture standpoint, chestnuts are a woefully underused and underappreciated food that can bring some much-needed diversity to any holiday table. I’ll make no claims to the contrary; chestnuts can be a bit of a pain to work with, but in the end, I think you’ll find the effort is worth it. This is a simple recipe meant to highlight chestnuts’ sweet, earthy flavor.
Note: You can also roast your chestnuts at 450 -500°F. (Different chefs prefer different temperatures.)
