Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts
- 1/2 lb. fresh chestnuts
- 1 1/2 lb. brussels sprouts
- 2 Tbs. unsalted butter
- Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Remove any damaged outer leaves from the brussels sprouts and discard. Bring a large saucepan three-fourths full of water to a boil over high heat. Add the brussels sprouts, reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and return to the saucepan. Add the chestnuts and butter and place over medium heat until the butter melts and the chestnuts are hot, about 1 minute. Stir well and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a warmed serving dish and serve hot.
