Chestnut Preserve
What You Need:
  • 2 pound large chestnuts
  • 2 pound sugar
  • 6 tablespoons orange-flower water

  • How To Cook:
    1. Shell chestnuts: to do this, score across the rounded side of each nut with a sharp knife, spread in a baking tin and put in a slow oven for 10-15 minutes, then peel off the shell and inner skins as soon as the nuts are cool enough to handle.

    2. Boil the chestnuts in a little water and drain.

    3. Now cook them in 6 tablespoons orange-flower water with 2 pound sugar and a few drops of vanilla essence, stirring occasionally, until quite soft.

    4. To test, drop a little of the mixture into cold water-if it goes solid, the preserve is ready.

    5. Pot at once in warmed jars, and cover when cold.
