Chris Parisi’s Pick of The Week
Last month we introduced you to the incredible nutritional benefits of chestnuts. Unlike other nuts, chestnuts are almost always eaten cooked in a variety of sweet and savoury dishes. Versatility is one of the best things about chestnuts. You can blend chestnuts into a hummus-style dip, puree with cauliflower in a hearty winter soup, or in a chocolate and chestnut torte. Of course, eating them freshly roasted is one of the classic ways to enjoy chestnuts, and it’s very easily done. Score each chestnut with a small ‘x’ using a sharp knife. Place in one layer on a tray and into a moderate to hot oven for 10-15 mins. Once done, place nuts in a clean tea towel and wrap up for five minutes. Then, unwrap, peel the outer shell and inner skin off. Enjoy!
