Cookbook Countdown #18: Creme de marrons aka chestnut cream

Chestnuts are back in season? Anyway saw them in the market, brought a small bag home.  Boiled them in the thermal pot and came home to shelling them and decided to make something new ~ chestnut cream!
cooked chestnuts (shelled), cream, soft brown sugar, vanilla pod, a pinch of salt
 once cooled, blended!
 Recipe from pages 52-53 of Rachel Khoo's sweet & savory pates
served as filling for thin pancakes with blueberries and red dragon fruit cubes
with a drizzle of honey.
my collection of  Rachel Khoo's cookbooks:
Rachel Khoo's
The Little Paris Kitchen
My Little French Kitchen
RK's Kitchen Notebook

and the latest additions to my collection:
Rachel Khoo's 'sweet & savory pates'
and Rachel Khoo's 'muesli & granola'
I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
