i bought some chest nuts from a local grocers as we are approaching winter and its chestnut season whooooo hoooo.

now I've never cooked them before, so it was a first for me, i washed them then i remember my mum cutting a little bit of the end off, so that's what i did.

popped them into the oven and just left them their for a while.

i was sat watching t.v when all of a sudden i heard a loud bang and it sounded like it was coming from the kitchen.
me and my husband ran into the kitchen, and the banging noises carried on, it was coming from the oven!!!

my husband wouldn't let me near the oven, he carefully approached the oven and opened the door at a snails pace, remembering to switch the oven off.

this is what he found:

dont even ask how long it took me to clean it. the rest that survived tasted pretty good if i say so myself lol.

just make a small incision or pierce each one with the point of a knife to prevent them from exploding ..and occasionally toss them around to prevent them from burning..bon appetite.

I remember many years ago my mother used to make a cut like a cross + on top of them then either put them on the oven or roast them on the Aladin heater we used to have in Libya, very nice :o)
