How to Honey Roast Chestnuts

Save

Roasted chestnuts conjure images of winter holidays, warm fires and, in some places, street vendors. Roasting is one of the most popular -- and least intensive -- ways to prepare these large, thick-shelled nuts. Red pepper, cinnamon and paprika are common ingredients used in preparing spiced chestnuts. However, one of the more sweet and popular alternatives is honey-roasted chestnuts.

Things You'll Need

  • 25 chestnuts
  • Knife
  • Baking dish
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Bowl
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

  • Score the flat side of 25 fresh chestnuts with a large X.

  • Place the chestnuts in a rimmed, oven-safe baking dish. Facing the scored side upward is preferred.

  • Roast the chestnuts for approximately 10 to 20 minutes or until the shells have split open and blackened.

  • Remove the pan from the oven with care. Peel off the blackened shells.

  • Combine the honey, brown sugar and salt in a bowl.

  • Add in cooled chestnuts and coat them in the mixture.

  • Return the chestnuts to the baking dish and oven. Bake until warmed, from three to five minutes.

  • Remove and let stand for a couple of minutes, until the honey mixture congeals a bit. Eat warm.
