An impulse purchase this week’s run at the grocery store, turns out to be full of flavorfull hoilday flair.  For many, roasted chestnuts are just the bridge in The Christmas Song

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping on your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

but it also can conjure memories of street vendors pedling their roast just in time for the Christmas season.  So it begs, how do they do it? Here’s some great instructions to do it traditional style at The Artofmanliness, or you can follow the more domestic  version below.  Either way, Roasted Chestnuts are a tasty treat that you can gobble alone or use to impress your friends.
