Really nice chestnuts, been using them for a while and they're delicious. I use them in everything, even sliced in salads. I freeze left overs and they defrost just fine. Only trouble is I eat most of them before I add them to the food! Try mixed leaves, toasted pine nuts, grilled halloumi, sliced chestnuts and a handful of grapes, then pour over some balsamic syrup. Unbelievably nice!!!

Delicious and perfect!

Good size and portion! Not a single broken bit. Used in a Chinse braised dish with pork. Superb!

make life easy

These are great, last well and just pop them out of the vacuum pack when you want to use. As well as being so easy for making the stuffing they are great stirred through your Sprouts with a handful of Pancetta in a pan with a knob of butter for Christmas dinner.
