In the golden autumn season, the thing I am most concerned about is the chestnut, the sweetness of the chestnut, the nutrition of the chestnut is unforgettable. In Liang Shiqiu’s pen: “In Peiping, after the autumn festival every year, almost every dried fruit shop on the street stands up a large iron pan, lifts a short chimney, and a small liba waves a large shovel, stir-fry chestnuts.Instead of frying directly, it is frying with sand, and adding sugar makes the sand into large and small grains, so it is called sugar fried chestnuts.The black smoke of bituminous coal spreads, the sound of stir frying, and sometimes the explosion of the millet: the sound, weaving into a lively scenery of late autumn and early winter. Children love chestnuts, buy a pack of several copper plates, wrap it with straw paper, and tie it with hemp stems, hot, sometimes it is simply hot, take it home and go to eat it for a while, hide it in the nest to keep warm .”This chestnut has exceptional vitality under the writer’s pen.”Today, chestnut specialty stores use machines to fry chestnuts. The home-made “sugar fry chestnuts” on the street can use microwave ovens, electric baking pans, pressure cookers, ovens and so on. The creativity of eating goods is unlimited. I personally like to make [sugar roasted chestnuts] in the oven. It is simple, convenient, and close to the street taste.Chestnut is rich in nutrients and is known as the “king of thousands of fruits”. It is also called “five fruits” together with peaches, apricots, plums and dates. It is also called “health food” abroad, and it belongs to the best fruits for strengthening the spleen and kidney and prolonging life. May wish to make [Sugar Roasted Chestnuts] at home this fall, and enjoy the delicious street food!
