Oven-roasted chestnuts


This is my blog with my favorite recipes.

Roasted chestnuts are my favorite autumn snack. It has a unique sweet flavor with a soft texture. September to November is the best time to try this delicious snack!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 600g Chestnuts
  • Salt

How to make it

First, prepare the chestnuts.

Place the chestnuts in a bowl of cold water for 1-6 hours.

Then make an incision.

Make an X-shaped cut on the round side of each chestnut. It makes peeling easier and prevents the nuts from exploding while cooking (I am using a serrated knife).

Finally, bake it!

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). A hot oven helps to separate chestnuts from their woodsy skin.
  2. Place the chestnuts on a baking sheet in a single layer.
  3. Roast in the oven for about 20-25 minutes.
  4. Remove the nuts from the oven.
  5. Wrap the chestnuts in a tea towel for 5-10 minutes
  6. Sprinkle them with sea salt and eat them as fast as possible
