I am a frsitr timer at this chestnut thing. An Ozzie liviing in Scotland. Made the mistake of making a sweet puree, and had just enough chestnuts to make this savoury one for a 'Spinach, Chestnut and Blue Cheese en croute, for Christmas lunch on Thursday. (The leeks are cooking as I write!) By the way, 8oz of freshly roasted chestnuts makes about 1 lb of puree using this recipe.Thank you so much! The family will be most impressed!
