Roasted Chestnuts, Rosemary & Smoked Sea Salt

When walking on the Farmers Market of Utrecht, I found these chestnuts. A real autumn treat! You can roast them in some olive oil. However, I love to flavor of the brown butter! To add some extra autumn flavors, I added some rosemary. You can also add spices like cinnamon or thyme, which are both also a delicious combination with the chestnuts.

To make these chestnuts even more special, I served them with some smoked sea salt flakes. How to eat this? Take the chestnuts out of the shell and dip in a few sea salt flakes. I love this sweet and salty mix!
