  • Hi everybody!

  • Do you like chestnuts?

  • These are chestnuts, have you ever cooked them at home?

  • I love chestnuts! Chestnuts are my favorite snack.

  • I just simply boil and eat.

  • Today, I'm going show how I cook and how I usually eat them.

  • And with cooked chestnuts, I'm going to make delicious Korean traditional cookies.

  • So cute! It's called:

  • 'Yul-lan'.

  • So, two recipes in one video, let's start!

  • Scrub this like this.

  • Couple of times, rinse this and pour out the water.

  • Pour some water until your chestnuts are submerged like this.

  • Cover, let's boil this over medium high heat.

  • So, fifteen minutes over medium high heat, I cooked this.

  • Lower the heat, low heat.

  • Ten more minutes, we have to cook.

  • And then, strain.

  • Rinse in cold water.

  • So, this is one pound (453.592 g) I'm going to divide into two portions.

  • One is for the cookies I'll make soon,

  • the other half is going to be how I usually eat for snack.

  • Okay, this is half pound (226.796 grams)

  • This is half pound half pound.

  • Like this.

  • Just scoop this with spoon.

  • Mmm.

  • I love it.

  • Second recipe, it's the Korean cookie called 'yul-lan', very beautiful.

  • To make this, we need special tool. (chuckles)

  • This is mortar and pestle.

  • And then I'm going to pound this, mash this.

  • Let's first all cut it in half like this.

  • Scoop out all insides.

  • Today I'm very lucky, all my chestnuts are very healthy, nice,

  • but when you see the brownish, a little rotten stuff then always take that part out.

  • Okay.

  • And then, pound this.

  • This mortar is made of stone, it came from Korea, I love this.

  • I'll make so many recipes with this.

  • Using this, your wooden spoon or rice scoop.

  • Through this hole from the coarse wire strainer, push like this.

  • And then you see, the powder-looking stuff coming through this.

  • This is not easy job, but you know,

  • when you work a little bit, make an effort, and then you'll get a really nice result.

  • So you'll be so happy when you see the really beautiful cookies soon.

  • The leftover is only skin part.

  • Great, and,

  • just we gotta use all.

  • Okay.

  • Two tablespoons (29.5735 ml) honey.

  • Half teaspoon (2.46446 ml) cinnamon

  • and pinch of salt.

  • And mix.

  • Really like syrup-looking.

  • Done.

  • Pour this here.

  • Look at this. And mix.

  • So we make it look like a dough, but it's already cooked and delicious, this cookie,

  • so you don't have to bake or anything.

  • Well mixed.

  • Gloves,

  • and make a soft lump.

  • We have to make the really nice shape.

  • Just a little bit.

  • Take some little bit

  • like a small chestnut size.

  • Shape this, it look like chestnut.

  • It's too much trouble for you?

  • Then, put some plastic wrap and make it tightly.

  • We made a dozen yul-lan!

  • And not finished yet, we are going to decorate this, it'll look really pretty.

  • These are pine nuts, I'm going to chop this into really small pieces.

  • We need honey.

  • Usually, just pine nuts and honey we use this, traditional way.

  • But I found out this green tea powder, really pretty color.

  • And this is black sesame seeds.

  • Just a little bit.

  • First, honey.

  • And, black sesame seeds.

  • Today we made just boiled, steamed chestnuts,

  • and Korean traditional cookies, 'yul-lan'.

  • Usually serve this with tea, really hot green tea.

  • I don't really feel like really hot tea today, I'm having some mineral water.

  • Yul-lan!

  • Mmmm!

  • Delicious! Sweet, soft, some cinnamon flavor, pine nuts texture, really awesome!

  • And green tea, I'll taste the green tea.

  • Mm!

  • Green tea plus this roasted black sesame seeds, really delicious!

  • We don't bake! Just make by hand.

  • Enjoy my recipe!

  • See you next time!

  • Byee~!
