The deceptive chestnuts

I found a bunch of these pretty little chestnuts near my school, but I have no idea what to do with them except stare at them. They’re so pretty!

UPDATE: I have since found a method to make roasted chestnuts: They’re in the oven as I type!

ANOTHER UPDATE: Get to know the chestnut  trees ion your area BEFORE you bother trying to cook + roast them. There is a difference.

The ones I just roasted did not taste like the warm roasted chestnuts I had in NYC. I just roasted the poisonous kind (horse chestnuts).

This was a silly post.

09 Oct 2012: Another update. Here are the right chestnuts. I grabbed a few today. No one told me they are the opposite of soft and fluffy. Hurt like heck!
