Chestnuts 'Alla Lucifero'


  • 40 good chestnuts
  • 1/2 a glass of rum
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar


Take chestnuts and roast them over a slow fire. Do not allow them to become dried up or colored.

Remove the shells carefully, put them in a bowl, and pour over them rum and powdered sugar.

Set fire to the rum and baste the chestnuts constantly as long as the rum will burn, turning the chestnuts about so they will absorb the rum and become colored.


Simple Italian Cookery.
