Roasted chestnuts | Alfa Forni


Turn on the Gusto oven putting 4/5 pieces of thin wooden logs on the hearth with paper underneath.
When it has lit well, add two larger pieces of wooden logs.
While waiting for a few minutes for the embers to form, start cutting the chestnuts.

Start by checking that the chestnuts are intact (no holes or marks). 
With a sharp and serrated knife, make a long cut of about 3/4 cm reaching the meat.

Once the embers have formed, spread them over the hob. 
Place the chestnuts on the perforated pan and put it directly on the embers in the Gusto wood-fired oven by Alfa Pizza.

Cook the chestnuts on the embers for about 30 minutes. 
Depending on the chestnut size and the amount of the embers inside the wood-fired oven, cooking time can vary from 20 to 30 minutes. 
In case more embers are needed, you can leave two small logs lit at the side of the oven.

Very good, quick and easy to make for a pleasant evening in the company of friends.
