    Default Sweet chestnut recipes

    So everyone the sweet chestnuts around here are great this year and the recent wind has brought some more down for us to harvest. We now have a decent bowl full of chestnuts to use. The only decision we have to make now is what to do with them. What's everyone's favourite recipes?

    I like to cut an x on the bases first, then boil them for a few minutes. Remove skins while still warm and damp. Then add them to sausagemeat, to make a meat loaf or stuffing balls.

    I tried Chopping them up and folding them within pastry layers, before using pastry as a lid for a 'remains of the turkey pie' one Xmas, that was lovely as well (I think it was a Jamie Oliver tip? )

    I too have collected some, sadly up here they are not much bigger than peas, so we won't be eating them, I just roast the ones I buy in the fire in a little container I made.
