Roast Chestnuts
from the kitchen of Sharmagne Leland-St John

1 dozen chestnuts

Make an X in the pointed end of the chestnut with
a chestnut knife or paring knife. Peel back the hulls
and discard into your compost bin. Scald the nuts
to remove the inner skin. Put a little butter in a
heavy iron skillet over a medium flame. Add the nuts
and toss for a few minutes until soft
Add a sprinkle of salt and a suspicion of cayenne.
These should be served after the cheese course.
Hence the age-old expression, "From soup to nuts!"
