It is very important to apply some tricks for the chestnut fruit to be completely separated from the shell and to be easily peeled. To make Marron Glace, chestnuts must first be peeled. Chestnut; has both an outer and an inner shell. The outer shell can be separated with the help of a knife. However, the inner shell is very difficult to remove. In addition, chestnuts are hardly separated from their inner shell when they are raw. For this reason, chestnuts must first be boiled and cooked.

    In order for the chestnuts to be boiled, they must first be washed thoroughly. The washed chestnuts should then be scratched with a knife. Scratching the chestnuts makes it easier to cook. It is also an important trick for the inner parts to be cooked evenly. Then it should be poured into a pot of cold water and boiled on low heat. Another trick during boiling is to keep the fire the lowest after the water in the pot boils. Boiling should be continued for a while after the fire is turned down. Chestnuts cooked on low heat for an average of 2-2.5 hours are separated from their shells without dispersing. In addition, they cook evenly. Marron Glace is best prepared with this method.

    Another tip of chestnut candy is the point of cooking it with sherbet. After boiled well, peeled chestnuts are placed in a cloth. This cloth should be permeable cloth. The permeable cloth should be turned into a pouch and left in the syrup. Boiling chestnuts with syrup in a permeable cloth is an important trick. The cloth prevents the chestnuts from dispersing.
