Available in most super markets between late September to December - Chestnuts - a very tasty, healthy low calorie and low cholesterol treat, that when roasted can be enjoyed by all. Special holes in the base of the pan allow flames through to roast the chestnuts to perfection. Your Chimenea Chestnut Roasting Pan can be tended too from a safe distance on the end of the long handle. It is advised that you put small incisions in the skins of the chestnuts - as they have been known to explode! If pressure is not allowed to release. Your Chestnuts will be ready once the skin appears burnt and the flesh of the nut appears yellow.
Take Care of your Chestnut Roasting Pan:
Cast iron is super durable and hardwearing, making it the perfect cooking vessel material if cared for correctly. Although already coated with a heat-proof non-stick coating we advise that prior to cooking you spread oil or butter lightly within the pan. Cast iron will rust if left uncleaned and outside. Simply wash and coat with oil when cool after each use. During cooking is is advised to shake the Chimenea Chestnut Roasting Pan every minute or so - this will ensure even cooking and prevent burning. Always cook on embers and not above direct flames - this will prevent a build up of soot - meaning unneccesary cleaning and uneven cooking results.
Please Note: Chestnuts have been known to explode if a small incision is not put in to each chestnut skin
