CHESTNUT MARMELADE




chestnut marmelade is a really really yummy marmelade..now its the season of chestnuts!!so its a very nice opportunity to store them..
This marmelade is really nice to put it in apple pies or in chokolate cakes or in what u have in mind!!!
They give a special rich taste! 
And of course its really nice and energetic for your morning bread!! 

 

chestnut marmelade


for 2 vases you will need :

1kg chestnuts                                                             
800gr sugar
vanilla (fresh would be a perfection)
2 drops of rum!

- boil the chestnuts for about 15 minutes..
open one to see if the are ready..if they taste like u could eat them then they are ready!
-clean them really carefully so you will not lose a big amount of them
-put the cleaned chestnuts in the blender (mixer) with some water and make a cream!!
you can keep some chopped so you will have some in the marmelade.
-put the cream with sugar to a pan and boil to low fire..
when its looks like its ready but you think that it has more water that u wanted to have so then its the right time to take it out of fire..
at this moment put the vanilla and the rum..
after 5 minutes remove the vanilla..
store in clean vases...
be carefull!!
DO NOT CLOSE THE VASES WHEN THA MARMELADE ITS HOT


kisses and love :)

and beautyfull breakfasts!!

  1. Sorry, you have used a picture of the wrong chestnuts. Your image is showing the chestnuts, poisonous to people. Ena, Denmark
