Roasted Chestnuts Provide Unusual Christmas Treat By GAVNOR MAIJOX .VEA Food and Markets Editor You know that beautiful fragrance of chestnuts roasting. But did you realize that those 'chestnuts come mostly from Italy where they, are called "bread of the mountains"? We eat a. lot of them In this country. About 25 million pounds will arrive for the holiday season m Ihe Vulcanla and the Saturnla of' the Italian Line and on the Independence and Constitution of our American Export Lines. I consulted the chefs of'these ships and here are their chestnut suggestions for Ihe Holidays: Just In case you don't know how to roast chestnuts, here's the recipe. You make an incision on the peel with a sharp-pointed knife near the base of the frull. This Is done so that they will not burst with (he heat. Put the Incised chestnuts In a very hot oven, or on a pan with holes on Ihe bottom, and hold over a high flame. Chestnuts .roasted In a pan must be turned' often to prevent burning. When cooked in (he oven, the heat is more evenly distribuled and frequent turning is unnecessary. Be sure the oven .is really hot. Slow roasting makes the chestnuts hard and less palatable. Chestnut Stuffing for Turkey Peel and skin chestnuts, boll them In sailed water until they are soft. Thon they are ilrted and put through a food chopper. To three cups of chestnuts. '/< cup of butter, salt and pepper is added, us well as \\ cup of milk. On Ihe side, mix ! cup of shrcdtied bread with >/< cup of butter. The two mixtures are combined and stuffed into the fowl. An especially large chestnut Is used to make the French, delicacy known as "manons glaces." They can easily be made by anybody who wants to make the effort. • Get very large chestnuts. Peel and boil them until they are half cooked. Skin them and put them in a pan, covering jvith lukewarm sugar syrup. A • drop of vanilla added to Ihe syrup helps Ihe flavor. The syrup will-'become thick on the 1 surface. Leave Ihe chestnuts in for a lew hours; then remove the lop layer/ of thickened syrup, take out the chestnuts and let them dry, spreading- them out nn a board. Repeat the process for three consecutive days. Alter the last dipping, let Ihe chestnuts dry. Then roll Ihem In confectioners' sugar.
