Why buy roasted chestnuts from the street stand when you can roast your own? They are tastier and healthier!


Serves: 2 

  • 500g fresh chestnuts
  • 4 tablespoons salad oil
  • 50g sugar
  • 40ml water

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Wash and dry the chestnuts. Cut a slit on the side with the bigger bulge on each chestnut. This is easiest with a serrated knife. Cut only the shell, not the flesh.
  2. Drizzle the oil on the chestnuts and toss well.
  3. Line a baking tray with foil and spread the chestnuts evenly over it. Roast for about 20 minutes.
  4. After 20 minutes the cracks should have opened up. Make a syrup of the sugar and water and brush the chestnuts with it, especially in the cracks. Bake for five more minutes then let cool and enjoy!
