I attempted to roast some chestnuts. You will be unsurprised to hear that they exploded.

(Yes, I cut the little X into them.)

Oh man, I'm so sorry!

If you ever visit Seoul in the winter, buy roast chestnuts from the street vendors. They are universally wonderful. (I don't know what their non-explosion secret is, though.)

I think my mom used to make them sometimes (but it was usually so much easier just to buy them from the street vendors--Korean street vendors are delightful). I will email her and ask her what her secret was, although I can't guarantee that I will be able to translate the response. (She emails me in Korean.)

Last week I went to the local Japanese stripmall (sort of a Japantown in a mall) and they were selling hot roast chestnuts from a cart outside. You might check that out sometime if they're seasonal for winter.
