What are the benefits of using an air fryer?
Air fryers are a relatively new appliance that has grown in popularity, and for good reason.
Firstly, air fryers require less oil than traditional deep frying methods. Secondly, they produce healthier and more flavorful food. Thirdly, air fryers heat up quickly and cook food quickly too. This makes them perfect for families on the go or anyone who needs to cook a quick meal in a pinch.
What is the best way to cut chestnuts for air frying?
The best way to cut chestnuts for air frying is to score them. You can use a sharp knife or a special kitchen tool called a chestnut peeler.
Cut the top of the chestnut off, then score it by making four cuts perpendicular to the first cut. The first cut should be straight down and about one inch deep. The second should be at about a 45-degree angle and 2/3 inches long (measuring from the end of the first cut). Do this on all four sides and then peel off each layer like an apple peel, but keep your fingers out of it as you do so as they will get very sticky!
