Chestnuts for Roasting on a Open Fire

It's the most wonderful time of the year.
Christmas carols are already filling the air 
and finding that perfect gift is on everyone's mind.
I've to combine the two for a festive present 
straight from Nat King Cole's classic song.

Simple to put together and a fun, delicious activity -
a gift doesn't get better than that.

Packaged in a small box and topped with
some jumbo matches for that open fire -
sure to strike up a conversation

Roasting chestnuts is easier than you might think.
Start with rich, dark chestnuts,
 available at most grocery stores in the produce section.
(usually from late October to December)

Slice slightly around the middle and roast over an open fire or in the oven.

While still warm, carefully remove the shells,

then chop to use in recipes or sprinkle with sea salt and enjoy right away.

Show up with this gift and everyone will go nuts!
