  • 14 oz fresh chestnuts preferably Marron
  • 1 bag charcoal


  • Prepare the barbecue
    1 bag charcoal
  • Make an intend in the chestnut shells, the chestnuts will expand when roasted
    14 oz fresh chestnuts
  • Place the chestnuts in the chestnut pan with holes
  • Cook them on an open fire, barbecue or if you don't have one in a hot oven 420 F - 200C
  • Turn them around until all sides are cooked
  • When the chestnuts turn into a dark yellow color and the cut opens up, they are ready
  • Best to eat them warm, but let them rest for few minutes before trying to open them



  • If I don't have a barbecue, I roast it in a very hot oven.
  • If you are roasting the chestnuts you need to make a small indent in the shell and halfway to the pulp otherwise, they will explode when they cook.
  • You don't need to indent them if you are boiling them.
  • The chestnuts should be cooked in a pan with large holes at the bottom.
