Red-pill me on chestnuts, /ck/.

So far all I've read is:
>boiling makes them soft but sweeter than roasting
>roasting them makes them slightly less sweet but with a roasted flavor
>a good percentage of raw, loose chestnuts will be bad (mold, worms, shriveled up, etc)

I need chestnuts for a stuffing, and possibly cookies.
I assume boiling is easier, but doesn't the song say "chestnuts roasting..."?

Those are not chest nuts

those are conkers

you tie a string in them and bash people and their own conkers with your own conker

even when i was a child i puzzled at the repetitive futility of this exercise

Just roast them. Why would you want mushy nuts in your stuffing/cookies?

>Running with your hands over your head to avoid a falling piece of wood that was released far too early and is veering way off track

Life was simple back then

bulldog was the best fucking game

I stepped on a rotten conker last year (it was pitch black) and this white pus cream came out. It was the most disgusting smell I've ever encountered

I prefer roasting personally because I find that chestnuts don't have much flavor to begin with so roasting really helps to bring that out. They will still be plenty soft to use in other recipes. Be sure to score them first of course and try to by Italian origin rather than the far more common Chinese origin chestnuts.

Yeah they are. They just happen to be a poisonous variety.

If you get a chance to get to NYC during the silly season get some roasted chestnuts from a street vendor, they're usually found around 57th st and 5th ave down to about 48th st and 5th ave in Manhattan. The roasted peanuts are good too.

Chestnuts I usually go for $2/bag, the peanuts $1 or $1.50.

Roast them, it's more delicious. If you are foraging them, then do not eat the ones in your picture. These are what they look like:
