  • 1 tbsp Vinegar
  • 400 grams Sugar

How to Make Chestnuts Cooked in Syrup

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 12 steps you must follow to make Chestnuts Cooked in Syrup in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Soak the raw chestnuts in boiling water for about 30 minutes, then peel. The outer skin will be softened and easy to peel.
  • Step 2
  • This is the toughest task, but don't give up. Soak the peeled chestnuts in water.
  • Step 3
  • Cut the dried gardenia fruit in half. The gardenia fruit are used to color the chestnuts, so they're optional.
  • Step 4
  • Put 1 liter of water, the vinegar and the gardenia fruit in a pan and bring to a boil.
  • Step 5
  • Add the chestnuts, bring to a boil again and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
  • Step 6
  • The chestnuts will become nicely colored as shown here.
  • Step 7
  • Drain, and rinse the chestnuts one by one in water.
  • Step 8
  • Put the chestnuts, 800 ml of water and the sugar in a pan over medium heat. When the surface is covered with small bubbles, turn the heat down to low just before it comes to a boil.
  • Step 9
  • Be sure to cook over low heat, and put on a small lid that sits right on top of the chestnuts (a drop lid or otoshibuta - you can also use a piece of kitchen parchment paper as a lid). If the pot is so hot that the chestnuts dance around in the liquid, they'll break apart. The simmering time differs depending on how big the chestnuts are, but it should be about 15 to 20 minutes after turning the heat down to low.
  • Step 10
  • Cool the chestnuts in the pan, and leave overnight. The flavors will penetrate and they'll become delicious.
  • Step 11
  • Take the chestnuts and pack in clean jars. Strain the syrup, and simmer to reduce to about 2/3 its original volume. Add the syrup to the jars to finish.
  • Step 12
  • These have less sugar than commercially made chestnuts in syrup, so store them in the refrigerator for up to a week. Please look up ways to store them for a long time.
