Put down the matches. Chestnuts are best enjoyed cooked, but you don't need to roast
them over an open fire. Just boil & broil.
First, use a sharp knife to mark an x on the flat side of each chestnut. Then bring them to a simmer in a small pot of water for
minutes. If eating right out of the shell, cook under the broiler for another
until browned. Either way, it's easiest to peel them when still warm.
