Chestnuts 10 fresh chestnuts Cut 1/2 small piece out of the top of each chestnut with 1/2 sharp knife. Separately arrange each chestnut around on 1/2 large, shallow, microwave-safe dish, or around the outside of the carousel.
Microwave on high for 50 to 60 seconds Rearrange and turn over each chestnut once during cooking. Allow to stand for 1/2 further 1 minute in your favourite recipes.
Peel and eat hot or use as desired. If the chestnuts have been picked for several weeks and appear to be 1/2 little soft, do not microwave for more than 40 seconds.
