Since then, they have been a staple in our home for all occasions - especially New Year's Day. Family members come early with the expectation of getting one hot out of the oven. The whole family gets involved - my father, husband, oldest son, and I would wrap the chestnuts while my mother prepared the sauce." Ingredients 1 pound bacon slices, cut into 3-inch pieces3 (8-ounce) cans whole water chestnuts, drained1 cup packed dark brown sugar1 cup chili sauce1/2 cup mayonnaise Instructions Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Wrap a piece of bacon around each water chestnut and secure with a wooden pick. Arrange the water chestnuts on the baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes, or until golden brown; drain. Combine the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl; mix well. Pour evenly over the water chestnuts and bake for 30 minutes longer, or until glazed. Remove the water chestnuts to a serving platter, reserving the sauce. Pour the sauce into a bowl and pass with the water chestnuts. Recipe by Cora and Kandi David, Cassville, Pa.
