I had a can of chestnuts in my pantry and I wanted to eat ɾm. This ice cream was a good route! I decided to not make the toppings and I also didn't sieve the mixture before it froze but I still think it came out great! Btw, I've discovered that this distinct flavor is best for chestnut fans. my husband didn't enjoy it as much as I did because I don't think he's ever eaten a roasted chestnut. for me though, this reminds me of the chestnut vendors in Paris during Christmas. Yum.
I modified this recipe and also used some ingredients I received as gifts from friends who have a chestnut farm in the south of France: Creme de Marron (chestnut spread) in place of chestnuts, and Creme de Chataigne (Chesnut) Liqueur. These ingredients are also available online. Make the custard with: No milk, 4 1/3 cups half&half, 6 large egg yolks, 1 cups packed dark brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, no orange zest, 1 teaspoon vanilla. After the custard is cooked, add: 1/2 cup of Creme de Marron (chestnut spread), 1/4 cup Creme de Chataigne (Chesnut) Liqueur), 1 tbsp Cognac. Strain, cool in ice bath and refrigerate overnight. Process in ice cream maker the next day.
This was luscious, in flavor and texture both! The chocolate sauce is superflous and maybe even detracts from the nuance of the chestnut flavor of the ice cream. Agree with the reviewer who suggested using the sauce elsewhere. My husband and I are both chestnut fans and appreciated the subtle chestnut flavor here.
This is amazing ice cream. I used frozen chestnuts from Trader Joe's. I pureed the chestnuts very well so I omitted straining the mixture. It turned out very smooth. I served it for Thanksgiving without the sauce. The next day I made the sauce which is very easy and tasty, but it was completely unnecessary with this ice cream and detracted from the chestnut flavor. However I might make this sauce to go with say a plain vanilla ice cream which is a flavor I have yet to make.
Our family are HUGE chestnut fans so I was anxious to try this ice cream for a Thanksgiving dessert. Although tasty, the ice cream didn't scream CHESTNUTS to me, and reminded everyone at the table of the Italian confection, torrone, rather than of chestnuts. Perhaps this is due to the addition of orange zest in the recipe.
How do I know if my chestnuts are fresh?
Make sure you use fresh chestnuts for this recipe- if they have been sitting out too long they will already start to dry and so won&rsquot cook and absorb as well.
Ways to help you know if they are fresh include where they are in the store &ndash if they are in the chilled produce section, they should be fresh as opposed to out on the shelf, where they are most likely dried (or at least partially so).
The weight also gives some indication of freshness &ndash fresh ones weigh more than dry chestnuts.
If dry, the skin may feel like it is separating from the nut inside (though you can still get that a bit with fresh ones) and the skin may be more dull.
If you are unsure, you can soak the chestnuts in water after scoring them to help them re-hydrate a little which may help.
Chestnut-Armagnac Soufflé with Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce
Blend chestnuts, 2 tablespoons water, and 1 tablespoon butter in processor until paste forms. Transfer mixture to small bowl. DO AHEAD Can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate.
Coat inside of 14-cup soufflé dish (about 8 1/4 inches wide and 3 3/4 inches deep) with remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Sprinkle dish with 1/4 cup sugar and tilt to coat bottom and sides evenly.
Whisk 1/4 cup milk, egg yolks, 4 tablespoons sugar, cornstarch, and salt in medium bowl to blend. Bring remaining 1 3/4 cups milk and 4 tablespoons sugar to simmer in heavy large saucepan. Gradually whisk hot milk mixture into yolk mixture. Return custard to same pan. Stir over medium heat until custard thickens and boils, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Add chestnut paste, Armagnac, and vanilla and whisk to blend well (some small pieces of chestnut paste will remain). DO AHEAD Soufflé base can be made 2 hours ahead. Press plastic wrap onto surface let stand at room temperature.
Position rack just below center of oven and preheat to 400°F. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in large bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 6 tablespoons sugar, beating until stiff but not dry. Fold whites into soufflé base in 3 additions. Transfer batter to prepared dish. Place soufflé on small baking sheet. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 hour ahead let stand at room temperature.
Bake soufflé until puffed and just firm to touch in center, about 50 minutes. Serve immediately with sauce.
*Peeled cooked chestnuts sold at some supermarkets and at specialty foods stores.
To serve the soufflé, use a very large spoon to gently scoop up some of the saucy interior along with a bit of the firmer sides.
Preheat oven to 425°. Place a large sheet of foil on a rimmed baking sheet. Place chestnuts, flat side down, on a work surface. Using a utility knife or a sharp paring knife, carefully cut through the shell on the rounded side of each chestnut to score an X. Soak in a bowl of hot water for 1 minute (this helps them steam while roasting).
Drain chestnuts and pat dry place in a medium bowl. Add rosemary, butter, 2 teaspoons salt, and nutmeg. Season with pepper and toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange chestnuts in a single layer in center of foil (a few might overlap) and gather up edges of foil around chestnuts, leaving a large opening on top.
Roast until the peel begins to curl up and chestnuts are cooked through, 30-45 minutes, depending on size and age of nuts.
Transfer chestnuts to a platter, using a spatula to scrape in any butter and spices with them, and toss to coat. Season with more salt, if desired. Serve hot or warm.
