hi ... Annie, I have never eaten cooked chestnuts, I do not know, but they are very good for crafting ...
This is the Dutch way:Was fresh chestnuts and throw floating away. Boil chestnuts about 20 about 10 minutes in water, peel them and boil them for 30 minutes in a liter of Bouillon until tender. Add 20 grams of butter. Stirring constantly, add 20 grams flour to produce a creamy soup. Take a few chestnuts from the soup and rub it into puree. Add them back to the soup and stir well. The last 50 cl cream and add a knob of butter and a little stir. No more boil! Before serving, you can add a little nutmeg to taste.I translate it from Dutch into englisch for you but you now ... my englisch is poor. I like your chestnut pics
Delightful shots! I love chestnuts, especially roasted on hot coals!
