La Forestiere Chestnut Purée

La Forestiere Chestnut PureeFall weather and the flavor of chestnuts…
Fresh chestnuts have yet to make it to our product department this season, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying their distinct taste.

Our staff pick for this week is La Forestiere Chestnut Purée because of its versatility and flavor. La Forestiere chestnuts are processed in the Ardeche region of France, known for its chestnut groves that were planted as far back as the 13th century. They choose the finest quality chestnuts, shelled by hand, and packed to retain their delicious flavor.

They’re gluten-free, sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, and vegan.

Traditionally found in classic French desserts and treats, chestnuts are naturally sweet. Try this easy, elegant chestnut puree in so many dishes including:

Soups and sauces
Roasted turkey or chicken
Grilled meats
Buche Noel
Added to baked good (replace some of the wet ingredients)
On pancakes and waffles
As a filling for crepes
On toast with butter

We also carry a sweetened Chestnut Cream from La Forestiere with a touch of vanilla.

And if you want to dig right in and start baking, this Chestnut Cheesecake from Epicurious is amazing!
