Great recipe, very tasty! One point - finding that a lower temperature over a longer period works better, as they're burning a bit while the chestnuts are still hard in the centre at such a high temp. Read More

I was a bit disapointed. It was challenging to assemble - the chestnuts didn't hold together to well. And it was a bit too salty for my taste. Read More

I make this all the time with just a little change. I find the brown sugar too sweet. So I just soak the chestnuts in the soy sauce and then wrap and cook. I lower the temperature to 375 and cook a little longer approx. 25 min. I find with the lower temperature the waterchestnut is cooked better. Read More

Didn't try it because I was looking for actual chestnut recipe and this seems to be WATER chestnuts. I rated 4 because that is currently the average rating and I didn't want to impact scoring. Can recipe title be corrected? If I find myself with spare water chestnuts i will come back to it though. I'm just adding this 'review' so no one else goes through reading all reviews before figuring out it's ONLY with water chestnuts. No one seems to have tried with real chestnuts. Read More
