Chestnuts

Bought some beautiful chestnuts today..I've always just roasted them in the oven and was wondering if anyone has a favorite family recipe they would share? My mom remembers her dad cooking them with wine, but I've no idea how that might be done..

thanks,
kadesma

After you roast and peel them (this is a job, I prefer a prepared jar from Williams Sonoma, about $11) cut each chestnut into 4 quarters and put them in your basic turkey bread stuffing, add to the mix right before you stuff.

I made a chestnut stuffing, once, thirty-five years ago. It was good. First time I ever used chestnuts. here is a link that might help you. I wish I had the resources then, that I can find now. All kinds of recipes. I need to get some from a neighbor, and try them again.

Maybe the chestnuts I tried were'nt that great but I thought my chestnut stuffing had that "dry nut taste" - maybe I used too many chestnuts?
