This recipe is influenced by the southeastern United States and has a bit of a kick!
Roast and peel the chestnuts.* Mince the garlic and sauté in butter for a minute in a heavy large skillet. Add the chestnuts and spices to incorporate, and then spread in a shallow pan and roast at 300 degrees F until a bit crispy (15-20 minutes).
*To roast chestnuts, cut a slash or an “X” into the shell, but not into the meat. Place nuts on a cookie sheet, sprinkle generously with water, and bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes. Let cool slightly (but not too much!) and then peel.
