    1. Preheat the oven to 345 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. Wash the chestnuts in water.
    3. Make a horizontal cut on the side of each chestnut.
    4. Place the chestnuts on a baking tray and sprinkle with the water and salt to taste.
    5. Roast the chestnuts for about 30-35 minutes in the oven until they are browned but not overcooked and soft on the inside. You must find a healthy medium to make sure they are not too soft and not too cooked as it makes all the difference.
    6. Once they are done, serve while hot.
