We roasted chestnuts on a bed of hot coals in our fireplace.
I've always been curious, because of that song.
"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire..."
I bought the chestnuts, but I delegated the task of researching how to roast them to Norah, so she took charge and lead us through the process.
Roasted chestnuts taste like a combination of an almond and a potato.
