While the chestnuts are still hot, cut in half with a knife and scoop out the insides with a spoon.
I smashed them with a masher, but they didn't get that smashed, so I thought of putting them in a food processor, but ended up using a blender.
Mix with the sugar (1/5 of the chestnut amount) and honey in a pot over low heat.
Put saran wrap on a scale and measure out 20 g (or any size you like) of the mixture.
Wrap up in the saran wrap and you're done.
Story Behind this Recipe
I received a bunch of chestnuts, so I gave this a shot. It was unexpectedly easy and I made a classy Japanese confectionery.
The sugar is 20% of the chestnuts, but adjust as you prefer. Adjust the proportion of honey, too. The chestnut chunks are big if you just smash them, so I thought I should have put them in the food processor from the beginning. But, when I put them in a blender, some pieces flew out and it was kind of a problem.
