How do I roast whole chestnuts so the furry layer doesn't stick to the nut?

The hairy/furry layer between the shell and the nut is impossible to remove.

I don't know of any way to prevent that, although it helps if the chestnuts were harvested awhile ago. If they were just harvested, that furry layer will cling more tightly, whereas if they've been harvested for days that layer will begin to dry and will cling less.
