While I love chestnuts simmered in their skins and candied chestnuts, I first like to eat them without any frills. Enjoy seasonal chestnuts.
I received delicious chestnuts.
The trick is to take the time to boil slowly. Before boiling (after drying) if you let them soak overnight in water, then boil in fresh water with salt, the shells will be easier to remove.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
