  • 18 ounces chestnuts raw


  • To prepare the chestnuts in the oven, start by choosing perfectly chestnuts.
  • Soak them for at least 2 hours. Thanks to this procedure, it will be easier to peel them once cooked.
  • Drain the chestnuts and, if you want, you can place them in a paper bag that will absorb the residual water or use a dry cloth to dry them well.
  • Notch the chestnuts. Make a horizontal cut of about 1 inch (2.5 cm).
  • Insert the tip of knife in the middle.
  • Bake your chestnuts distributing them evenly on the baking tray lined with baking paper, and bake in a preheated oven in static mode at 360 ºF (180 °Celcius) for about 25-30 minutes.
  • Once ready, take them out of the oven and place them in a basket or bowl, covering them with a dry cloth.
  • Let them rest for at least 15 minutes before tasting them: this will make it easier to remove the peel!
  • Peel the chestnuts with you hands.


The cooking time of baked chestnuts can vary according to the fruit’s size and the oven; from time to time, move the chestnuts to achieve homogeneous cooking.
