How to roast chestnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced)
  2. Cut a shallow cross into the flat side of each chestnut shell. Place prepared chestnuts onto a baking tray and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the shells split open.
  3. Once cooked, remove chestnuts from the heat and wrap in a clean tea towel for 5 minutes. While chestnuts are still warm, quickly peel off the outer brown shell and remove the papery thin skin underneath.

I wanted something to use up some chestnuts that I picked over Easter. I mostly kept to the recipe although added much more garlic, skipped the wine in the sauce and added the juice from the zested lemon instead. Absolutely delicious with mash potatoes.
