Finally you can over moderate heat, cover with a lid and cook for about 40 – 45 minutes. Check under the fork tines that they are soft.

If they are still hard, it means that they are larger and you will have to continue cooking. I recommend you evaluate 5 minutes in 5 minutes.

Remember that the fork must sink but must not be mushy!

Once ready, drain immediately and spread them out on a cloth.

Then engrave them with a knife from the base and gently peel them, first removing the outer bark and then the skin.

I was very meticulous to get them whole and it took a long time, but if you don't need the whole chestnut it will be a quicker job! Once peeled they are ready to eat!

Yours are ready Boiled chestnuts!

Store the boiled chestnuts

As you can see from the photo, mine are shiny, because I brushed them with oil, this step allows you to keep them soft for 1 week.

You can leave them like this at room temperature for about 1 day, then better keep them in the fridge, brush strokes and hermetically sealed!

Lemon, lime and mint popsicles Quick and easy recipe – Gordon Ramsay’s version

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Lemon lime and mint popsicles: today we prepare homemade popsicles, my daughter decided to help me :-). We chose two flavors that my daughter and I particularly love: lemon and mint, having molds for 8 popsicles I decided to prepare 4 with lemon and 4 with mint. For those with the chin I used Fabbri syrup, for those with lemon it is necessary to use hot water (no need to boil it, as long as it is hot from the tap) to dissolve the sugar well. The addition of lime gives an extra touch but it is not necessary. If you love the taste of lime, you can also add the grated rind of this fruit to the mixture, and maybe a few thin slices to embellish the popsicle. Try it, they are refreshing and delicious!

Ingredients for 8 popsicles of 75 gr

LEMON ICE:

210 grams of hot water
60 gr of lemon juice + 1 lime
50 grams of sugar

MINT ICE LOLLIES

225 grams of water
75 gr of mint syrup
