1 lb. fresh chestnuts, rinsed and dried
- Preheat oven to 425°. Lay chestnut flat side down on a cutting board and use a serrated knife to cut an “x” about 1/3 of the way through the chestnut. Repeat until all chestnuts are scored.
- Place chestnuts flat side down on a small baking sheet. Pour 2 cups cold water into another small rimmed baking sheet. Place chestnuts on top shelf of oven and baking sheet with water on the bottom shelf, directly below the chestnuts.
- Bake until skin peels away from chestnut, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove chestnuts from oven and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Let cool 5 minutes before peeling.
