I thought that it would be a great idea to cook up so chestnuts for the meal. So I tossed some into a glass pie plate and into the oven they went. About 45 minutes later I smelled something. It wasn’t a burning but it was off. So I looked into the oven and saw that one of the nuts had exploded. So I figured it was time to pull them out.

Grim and the older two monsters were in the kitchen with me and we were laughing about the one that exploded in the oven when one decided to explode on the stove top. First let me say no one was hurt. But Grim and I were the worst hit. Since I didn’t think to take pictures let me give you a mental image. We were covered in what looked like very fine mashed potatoes. Our hair, our clothes and our kids all had to be cleaned up!

I guess that is why they say to score them before you put them in the oven. Oh well, that’s what I get for try to take an easy route! Better Luck Next Time... LOL!

Um, yes? giggle - They're like potatoes, they need to be scored [or poked in the potatoes case] or you have the explodey all over the place.

Glad you guys didn't get burned. And only two went off.

But the question is. . .were they yummy? I bet!

I once exploded a big eggplant all over the inside of my oven - it blew the door open, and there were little shreds hanging from the racks both above and below.
