Chestnuts - memories from Portugal

I am living abroad but of course I miss Portugal, and yesterday I bough chestnuts (aka castanhas)! Actually they pretty hard to find in Australia, I suspect that there is no chestnut production around here... :-/
Why do they bring memories? Well... in Portugal is custom to find in the streets trailers with roasted chestnuts.

It was a bit difficult to make them like Portuguese style since I do not have a fireplace (or even a oven!) but with a bit of imagination everything is possible! All you need is a microwave, a pot, a lot of salt and water!
