Korean Fresh Chestnuts "Ok-Kwang-Bam" 옥광 밤 - approx. 1kg


Ok-gwang Chestnut is slightly smaller than other varieties, but its skin is thin and full, so it has an excellent texture, and the bottom of the chestnut is narrow and plump.

Unlike other chestnut, Ok-gwang-bam has a unique appearance at the bottom of the chestnut. It's narrow, round, and glossy.

No mass production, it has a higher sugar content and is harder than regular chestnuts. It is sweeter and has a much less percentage of fillings, so you can taste clean flesh!

For those who ate Ok-gwang-bam, they only look for Ok-gwang-bam.


1- Preheat oven or air fryer to 200C : A very hot oven is key for the chestnut to separate from its woody skin. Placed the oven rack in the middle.

2. Make an incision: Lay the chestnut flat on your cutting board. With a serrated knife, make a lengthwise slit down the entire middle surface, on the long side. Make sure you hold down the chestnut firmly on the cutting board (be careful not to cut yourself, as the outer shell is very slippery).

3. Roasting chestnuts in oven: Place the chestnuts with the flat side down, the cut side up, in a single layer in your baking pan. Roast in the oven for about 20 – 30 mins. For air fryer, this is about 30 – 40 mins.

The time can vary based on the size of your chestnuts. Give the pan a few shakes throughout the roasting time. You will notice that the shell splits open as they roast. The only way to know if they are cooked through is by eating one of the roasted chestnuts.

4. Wrap them up: Once you have obtained perfectly oven roasted chestnuts, remove from the oven and wrap them in a clean tea towel. Allow the wrapped chestnuts to sit in the towel for about 10-15 minutes.
