Chestnut Puree is a dessert of puréed, sweetened chestnuts topped with whipped cream. This recipe for sweetened chestnut puree can be used in many sweet meals and cakes, or just be eaten as a dessert. It is delicious and popular in Croatia and surrounding countries. It is also popular in France, Italy, Hong Kong, Japan, Hungary and the northwestern regions of Romania.
Ingredients:
– 400 g of raw (or cooked and peeled) chestnuts
– 70 g of sugar;
– 40 ml of rum;
– 12 ml vanilla flavor;
– 1 3/4 cups water;
– 200 ml of milk cream.
Preparation:
First, learn how to roast the chestnuts? Heat oven to 250 C degrees. Cut an “x” on the flat side of each chestnut shell. Place chestnuts in a single layer on a sheet pan with a lip. Roast until shells begin to peel back, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes to cool. After you do that, peel shells and let chestnuts cool completely.
1. In a medium saucepan, bring chestnuts, sugar, water to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for about 45 minutes. Remove from heat and put some rum, vanilla, or if you want, some milk cream in it.
2.Mix it and blend it until smooth. Let cool completely before refrigerating. Serve it cold with whipped cream sprinkled with chocolate.
