Crème de marron/Chestnut cream

vircabutar Oct 27, 2012 12:56 AM

Hi all,

I just made a chestnut cream puree thing made with cooked chestnuts, heavy cream, vanilla, rum (subbed in place of cognac), raw sugar, and a bit of salt, and it was AMAZING!

Just wanted to share this with you guys bc it'd be perfect for holiday desserts
