So, I picked up this neat copper and brass chestnut roaster over the summer. Figured I'd try roasting some in the Jotul this fall, and did so this week. First attempt proved you cannot always go by other people's times, when cooking on something as variable as hot coals, when the chestnuts caught fire. Second attempt got them just right, according to one visitor who used to have them frequently. Very cool and romantic and all, but the funny thing is that after all that... I decided chestnuts are really not all that good! A funny soft nut, they are, somewhat sweet but not really having that strong a flavor at all.
