The smell of roasted chestnuts at the Christmas markets is when you know Christmas is nearly hear.
There is almost nothing better then holding a bag of warm chestnuts on a cold night, its like a little bag of love.
Chestnuts are actually rather easy to do at home on your fire or in your stove, so why not give them a try.
Make sure that you give them a good rise with warm water as this will prevent the chestnuts from burning.
Once rinsed, pierce with a knife to make sure that these little chestnuts don’t pop and start flying across the room.
Either place them into a cast iron pan or loosely wrap in tin foil prior to placing in your fire.
Cook for a few minutes on a high heat and then enjoy!
Christmas is here!
