Grandma used to cook the T-Day turkey in a Glenwood. It was usually terrible. Usually either burned or dried out. Tough to get the heat regulation just right and difficult to maintain.
My father used to brag about my grandmother’s cooking. My uncle said it wasn’t that good. It was just that they were always half starved.

That is a nice pot, I can’t find any that look that clean. Most look like they have been rusting in a land fill and have pits almost all the way through in places. Also can’t find one with a lid. Yours have a lid???

No, but I have my grandmother’s “Pot Roast Only” pot with lid and trivet

We have one like that with the original lid ---- My dad bought it from an auction 50 years ago --- it was very old at that time. We use cast iron most of the time----food tastes better cooked/fried in cast iron.

I didn't know you could roast them on the stove top. How do you do it? I've got about a half bushel of Chinese Chestnuts and I looked it up on how you had to roast them. Something about scoring each one with a knife and then soaking them in water overnight. Then in the oven.
I do a X on the bottom. a slice on the top. put pan on med. let heat up. put in chestnuts on the x. let heat til can see some black on bottom. turn over. do same. let cool. deshell. enjoy. if not creamy enuff (should be) then cook bit longer. any fry pan will do. but i like my small cast iron pot best. ie, small fry pan with sides...

I found this pan at a private dump years ago when I was a kid. I use to shoot ground hogs that burrowed in his lane (old RR right of way) for the owner. it was in bad shape. I cleaned all the rust off with a wire brush in a drill and the soaking the inside with muratic acid while heating on a hot plate. Cleaned up well. It needs a little work now though.

Looks like you score just one side? Shells are pretty hard-use a knife only?

no, X on bottom, slice on top. they are actually soft, but care is needed making the slices as knife sharp and chestnut small. just cut thru the 'skin' sorta like a baked potato so as to release some of the water moisture. left uncut they can explode.... there is no shortage of info and pix online.
