Please help me with roasted chestnuts-How do you get the fuzzy lining off? I just threw 3 pound in the garbage!

I love roasted chestnuts and I am USUALLY a very good chef, so I decided to make some. I could NOT get the fuzzy lining off the nuts! I bought a chestnut cross-cutter because I had such a hard time cutting the "x" in the raw nuts. I roasted them in the oven because I do not have a chestnut pan with the holes, and do not plan to buy it. I tried so hard to get the fuzzy part off the nuts. Finally, I just threw them out. Clearly I did something very wrong because when I buy them roasted, they peel easily. Please tell me how to cook the chestnuts so that the fuzzy part slips off and the nuts are sweet and roasted. Thank you.
