How To Make Braised Chestnuts
This is a hearty meal that can be enjoyed by your whole family during weekend gatherings.
Heat a heavy saucepan, and add the oil, butter, and chopped onions.
When onions turn slightly brown, glaze with port wine.
Add thyme, chestnuts, chicken stock, and a little salt and pepper.
Cover and cook until chestnuts are tender and the chestnuts have absorbed most of the liquid.
This will take an hour or so.
Serve as whole-braised chestnuts or pass through a ricer to make a wonderful chestnut puree.
