What are chestnut ingredients used for?
They provide flavour and texture to stews, pasta and puddings, but they are also the ultimate ingredient for plant-based creations such as risottos and soups.
Naturally sweet in flavour, they also work perfectly in desserts, ice cream or in pureed form mixed with alcohol such as rum or kirsh.
We provide many manufacturers and retailers with chestnuts in various forms, to help with preparation including whole chestnuts, dried kibbled chestnuts, chestnut puree or Marron Glaces.
