How to Make Store Fresh Chestnuts & Solve the Tricky Question of Peeling Them

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 19 steps you must follow to make Store Fresh Chestnuts & Solve the Tricky Question of Peeling Them in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • How to store fresh chestnuts so that they become sweeter: Don't wash the chestnuts you've harvested. Just wipe them clean. (If the dirt doesn't bother you, just leave them as-is.)
  • Step 2
  • Wrap in newspaper, then put them in plastic bags (such as plastic shopping bags) and store in the coldest part of the refrigerator. (Use the "chilled" compartment if your refrigerator has one). This way, they become sweeter.
  • Step 3
  • How to peel the chestnuts: Make a crisscross into the pointy end. Be careful not to cut yourself if you're using a knife.
  • Step 4
  • Don't cut too deep or the chestnuts will fall apart when cooked. As long as you pierce through the outer shell and the inner skin, they're fine.
  • Step 5
  • If you are using a chestnut peeler, it's easier if you cut into the outer shell and inner skin with the end of the scissors.
  • Step 6
  • Put the scored chestnuts and enough water to cover in a pressure cooker. Bring up to pressure, then lower the heat and cook under pressure for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and cool the cooker down rapidly.
  • Step 7
  • Drain the water. When the chestnuts have cooled down a bit, start peeling from the scored end. Stick the end of a knife under the skin and peel off. It will come off easily.
  • Step 8
  • Use the chestnuts in syrup or other recipes. You can freeze them in plastic bags too.
  • Step 9
  • If you want to retain the inner skin for chestnuts simmered in their inner skins, just score through the outer shell in Step 4. This way, the inner skin won't tear and will remain intact.
  • Step 10
  • Observation: I tried storing the chestnuts in the "chilled" compartment for 2 weeks, changing the newspapers twice during the process. I think the chestnuts got about 20% or so sweeter.
  • Step 11
  • I also stored some chestnuts in the vegetable compartment of the refrigerator and compared them. The ones in the "chilled" compartment were sweeter.
  • Step 12
  • Further observation: After 2 months, the chestnuts stored in the "chilled" compartment had no problems at all. They were delicious cooked. (I changed the newspapers several times.)
  • Step 13
  • To be more specific, the chestnuts seem to dry out a little, since I think the outer shell got a little wrinkled. Therefore, instead of peeling I boiled them in their shells and scooped out the insides.
  • Step 14
  • Further further observation: After 3 months, the chestnuts in the "chilled" compartment were perfectly fine. Is it before of the amount, moisture, and the scoring? (continued...)
  • Step 15
  • (Continued) I cooked chestnuts in a pressure cooker - about 20 chestnuts with 200 ml of water, brought to a boil and cooked under pressure over low heat for 5 minutes, then cooled rapidly to bring down the pressure. They were cooked through on the firm side.
  • Step 16
  • Further further further observation: Even after 4 months, the chestnuts in the "chilled" compartment still had a sheen and were fine.
  • Step 17
  • This year, we used up all the chestnuts after 4 months. From here on we'll be using the frozen ones until next chestnut season.
  • Step 18
  • From my yearly experiences: Use peeled chestnuts within a month, even if they are frozen. They take on a freezer-smell otherwise.
  • Step 19
  • If you are making a chestnut paste, see.
