Organically grown chestnuts.

Other Information

Cultivated in the Ardeche region of France by some 80 organic co-operatives and growers. The Ardeche is well known for its chestnut groves that were planted as far back as the 13th century. These organic chestnuts are picked from the beginning of September through to November, shelled by hand and then cooked. The Ardeche chestnut groves are the subject of a variety of regeneration and ecological projects as well as an A.O.C initiative that serves to emphasise a quality of origin.


Mushroom No-dish Pie (from Vegetarian Living Magazine)

Serves 4, prep 30 mins, cook 20 mins,br. 350g chestnut or button mushrooms, quartered
50g butter
25g dried porcini mushrooms, soaked according to pack and then moisture squeezed out
100g peeled chestnuts (or ready-prepared ones)
3–4 tbsp chopped parsley
salt, pepper and grated nutmeg
4–5 tbsp soured cream
free-range egg, beaten, to glaze

1 Sauté the mushrooms in butter, until just tender. Stir in the porcini, 80g of the chestnuts and the parsley. Season well and allow to cool.
2 Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/ gas 6 and unroll a pastry sheet on to a lined baking tray. Stir the soured cream into the cooled mushroom mixture and pile on to the centre of the sheet, leaving a border all round the edges. Brush the border with the beaten egg.
3 Place the second pastry sheet on top, press the edges together well to form a seal and crimp up the edges to give a rustic appearance. Brush the top again with beaten egg and sprinkle with the remaining chestnuts, roughly chopped.
4 Make a couple of slits in the top and bake for about 20 minutes until the pastry is golden brown. Serve hot.

These were essential for my veggie Xmas main course - a gorgeous tart made with blue cheese, chestnuts and pears! Sounds weirds. Tastes great..

Eat Me - Mon 3rd Feb 2014

High in fibre and low in fat. Add to cassoulets and stir fries for nutrition and satisfaction. Delicious!

Christmas time is great, and what could be better than these chestnuts (ready to use!). They work wonders in homemade stuffing, which is what I did this Christmas. Easy recipe, fantastic taste and texture!!
