Chestnut Spread


This is one of those French things you can spread on your baguette in the morning if you so desire. It's not for me, but hey, try it if you can find it!

When I had a French friend living in the US, it was one of the things I would bring her because she couldn't find it there. But that was many years ago, and times have changed. Heck, we can even find Reeces' Peanut Butter Cups here, so life has really evolved...

French people also make all kinds of things with this stuff... If you want to see a typically French recipe site, go to www.Marmiton.org. They have a sister site in English called www.letscookfrench.com. Enjoy browsing!

  2. Good day!
    Speaking of food, I've just put in the oven a banana bread made with your recipe from the Orleans master Linguistique and didactique course 2 years ago! I've also added some cranberries.. Looking forward to see (and eat!) the result!
    Warm greetings from Orleans
