We’re celebrating chestnut season in Australia! 

These healthy and ultra-tasty nuts are harvested from March to July each year. And we plan to incorporate fresh chestnuts into as many meals as possible! 😍 

Roasted chestnuts, with their sweet aroma and texture a bit like a roast potato (crispy on the outside, with a soft centre), are a delicious base for loads of recipes. 

Here’s how to roast chestnuts:
🌰  Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). 
🌰  Cut a shallow cross into the flat side of the shell (this prevents them from overheating and bursting while cooking).
🌰  Place chestnuts onto a baking tray and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the shells split open.
🌰  Once cooked, remove them from the heat, and wrap in a clean tea towel for 5 to 10 minutes, then peel off the outer brown shell and remove the papery thin skin underneath.

Tip: Peel chestnuts while they are still warm (this is much easier than after they’ve cooled). 

Put your roasted chestnuts to good use with this Spicy Chestnut Noodle Soup recipe!
