In fact, there are sugar-sautéed chestnuts in the streets and alleys throughout the year. Every time I walk to the front and smell the sweet taste, I will be greedy.But to say that the best season for sugar-fried chestnuts is from August 15th until the New Year, this period is the best time to eat chestnuts. Now there are more and more stores that fry chestnuts with machines, and the quality is also uneven. Because of concerns about food hygiene and safety, I usually make sugar fried chestnuts at home, which is simple and convenient!
How to make sugar fried chestnuts
Put the chestnut in the pot and wash it, it is best to soak for a while. Drain the chestnuts and use scissors to cut the cross-cut edge, so that the ripe chestnuts open fast and easy to taste.
Put the prepared chestnuts in an electric pressure cooker and pour the corn oil.
Pour 20 grams of clean water and stir fry up and down so that sugar and oil are evenly covered with chestnuts.
Press the cooking button and wait for a while. After adjusting the button, open the lid and press the cooking button again to roast the water in the pot as much as possible. The chestnuts will be fully opened and the shell will not be peeled.
