Default Chestnut ideas

I found two big jars and 3 cans of roasted, peeled chestnuts at the
discount store y'day.

A couple of them will go to my Mom, who always has to make chestnut
dressing for Thanksgiving (no matter that I want to make the whole
meal, at 91, who can argue with her?). I'm trying to think of what to
do with the rest of them.

I did make a chicken vegetale soup with some of them last night. Nice
texture, but flavor? Eh. Can they be toasted? Most of the recipes I
found on-line either simmered them in liquid and riced them, or used
them whole or chopped for stir fry, sides, main dishes or desserts.

Got any input?

Yes - curb the impulse to buy stuff on sale........'cause it looks like a
good deal. (Sorry, couldn't resist that comment -- I am so guilty of that.)

But I'm surprised you found the soup flavourless, I made a chestnut soup
last year. Had the kids shell the chestnuts - they will never, ever
volunteer to do that job again! The soup was great though, a completely
different flavour than I expected - sort of sweet. Perhaps you didn't add
enough chestnuts??

In Martha Stewarts Cookbook, there's a recipe for chestnuts and fennel. It is
wonderful!

Actually, that would be a speaker of broken English... as opposed to being a
used English stereo component.

Your comma is equally extraneous. You're a pinhead.
