Hot Buttery Roasted Chestnuts

These are the finished Chestnuts, hot, nicely sweet, buttery, & salty, perfect!
I bought a pack of fresh Chestnuts & got about 30 nice sized Chestnuts for about $5.oo. Out of the lot I only had one bad Chestnut. Not bad at all! Cut an X into each Chestnut just through the hull, try not to cut into the nutmeat! If you do the Chestnut will not stay whole but it will still be delicious! Now soak them in cold salted water in enough water to cover all the Chestnuts & use about 2 teaspoons of salt. Let them soak for at least 2 hours.

  These are the Chestnuts with the X cut into them! Ready for their salt water soak!
Once soaked drain them. Now put them into a deep saucepan & cover with water, NOT SALTED! Bring to a boil & boil for 20 minutes! Drain Chestnuts
     These are now cooked & peeled! You must peel them while still warm! Otherwise they are all but impossible to peel! You remove the hull & the layer of brown skin from the nut! Now when you are ready to eat them fry them in 2 tablespoon of butter & a shake or 2 of salt to taste! Eat while hot! You are correct these are not roasted per say but TASTE JUST LIKE THEY ARE FROM THE STREETS OF NEW YORK! DELICIOUS!
