Roasting Chestnuts - How to?

essny | Nov 29, 2008 12:53 PM

I bought a bunch of chestnuts from Sahadi's (Brooklyn, NY) and want to have them available for guests to eat at tomorrow's brunch. My mom usually steams them but I want to try roasting them in the oven. Should I use my cast-iron skillet? or put them in a roasting dish? Do I need to score them? how high should I set the temp? Are they done when the skin has curled/popped?

And if there's been a post about this already, sorry for the repeat. I'd appreciate a re-direct.

Thanks.
