How to peel fresh chestnuts
Cut an “X” in each nut on the flat side. Spread them out in a single layer on a cookie sheet and roast them at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
After the chestnuts have cooled, peel the leathery shell off. Then hold it between your thumb and forefinger to squeeze it out of the thin skin around it.
