HOW TO PREPARE CHESTNUTS

With a sharp knife make a slit in each chestnut; put them into boiling water for four minutes, take out, and dry thoroughly. Then melt three tablespoonfuls of butter in a saucepan, and toss the chestnuts about in it until every nut is coated and very hot.

It will then be found that with the aid of a sharp-pointed knife both skins can be easily removed together, leaving the nut whole, and ready for subsequent manipulations.
