Crème de Marrons from Ardeche
My son insists that I keep a jar of sweetened chestnut puree on the pantry shelf at all times. That way, we're ready when I whip up a batch of breakfast crepes, the perfect foil for this delicious spreadable treat.Sweetened chestnut spread is a speciality of the department of Ardeche in the south east of France. It is made from chestnuts, pieces of candied chestnuts, sugar, glucose syrup, and vanilla. The ingredients in chestnut spread are simple: chestnuts and sugar. Simple ingredients for simple people that know what tastes good, but don't want to waste a lot of time getting it on their plates. The French put it on the breakfast table, right along with the baguette and orange juice. If you prefer you can also find unsweetened chestnut puree.
