I'm planning to make candied chestnuts for holiday gifts, and will be peeling a few pounds of chestnuts in preparation. I don't want to roast them because I don't want the roasted flavor. Any good ideas for peeling a large quantity of chestnuts (and keeping them whole so they'll look pretty when candied)?
