How to best peel chestnuts

Peeling chestnuts is easy, but it can be difficult at times. However, there is a simple trick that will help you enjoy them more quickly. Find out.

October is characterized by being a very special month, which gives way to a new season, a time that involves the transition to a period that goes from the most absolute heat (typical of summer), towards the coldest days of winter.

It is a season in which the well-known time change occurs, which always tends to affect many people, especially because the decrease in light causes a hormonal change that in many cases causes the appearance of what is known as autumn depression (also known as autumnal asthenia).

To avoid these consequences, which in fact disappear only in a few days, it is advisable to anticipate the change by consuming fruits as healthy as figs, which provide ideal nutrients to avoid these annoying symptoms of autumn, and take vitamin supplements that help increase defenses, and thus prevent the spread of flu or colds.

The month of October is also characterized by the arrival of two of the most characteristic foods of autumn, in addition to figs: chestnuts and mushrooms, two natural products that are as healthy as they are healthy.

In the first of the foods, they provide a wide variety of benefits and nutrients, among which B vitamins and carbohydrates stand out, which provide energy. A good way to consume them is either raw or roast chestnuts.

But, on certain occasions, peeling chestnuts can become an ordeal. Therefore, here is a simple trick that will be very useful for you.

Useful tips to help you peel chestnuts

Although to peel chestnuts only requires a little skill, and above all patience, it is only necessary to cut them in their hardest shell with the help of a knife.

Then put water in a saucepan to boil, and when the water comes to a boil put them in the saucepan, leaving them to rest for three minutes. To peel them well, it is essential that we do it before they get cold.

There are also people who tend to grill them to peel them and eat them better. The only drawback is that you must wait for these to cool (so as not to burn yourself) and that you cannot use them in desserts, since as a general rule they tend to be somewhat burned.
