Too many chestnuts?

Posted by Sainsbury's on 5 January 2016

As long as they’re not mouldy or bitter there’s still many of ways to cheer up chestnuts that are past their best.​

So often, more chestnuts are sold than can possibly be roasted and eaten during their season – but what can you do you with the leftover ones? As long as they have been stored well (preferably in the fridge for up to three weeks) and don’t smell bitter or have any black mould on the outsides, you can still cook them up into something tasty.

Try our creamy vegetable and chestnut gratin, which will also help you use up any surplus fresh broccoli and cauliflower.
