Product Description

These are delicious meaty French chestnuts from Ardeche, in southeast France, by Clement Faugier.

Drain the water and use these whole peeled chestnuts for stuffings or other preparations.

Of course, you may also find yourself eating them straight from the jar!

Once widespread in France, chestnut trees, or chataigniers, are now becoming scarce as land has been given over to more profitable crops like grapes. Today the number of regions producing chestnuts has dwindled - Ardeche, Corsica, and Limousin are now the principal producers of chestnuts.

These chestnuts by Faugier are imported from France.

Briefly, I agree entirely with the previous reviewer. I have tried a few sources of fresh chestnuts and several brands and types of peeled chestnuts (in water, in syrup, dry, etc.) and none comes close to Clement Faugier's, whether one uses them to make turkey stuffing, chestnuts in syrup, marrons glaces, or in other productions. I have been buying these marrons for well over a decade, and this is a very good price for them.

Every Thanksgiving I make chestnut stuffing & use fresh chestnuts but it's alot of work. Thought this year I'd try these & maybe take the easier way....well I opened the can & drained them. They looked horrible & were very mushy & tasted, well..like water! A very faint chestnut flavor but absolutely NO substitute for the real thing so I ran to the store & got the real thing. Despite the work of roasting & peeling fresh chestnuts, it's worth it! Sorry I just don't recommend these to anyone!

These French chestnuts are the best type to use for baking and as stuffing. They have a very pure flavor and are subtle enough for desserts. I have tried all other types of chestnuts, but these are the best. Italian fresh chestnuts ( which are available fresh in my grocery store) are smaller and have a less sophisticated and subtle flavor. The difference is akin to that between a California Red Zinfandel and an aged, French Bordeaux. If I lived in France, I would use fresh Chestnuts, otherwise- I use only the Clement Faugier brand. ( NOTE: these chestnuts are in water, not sugar syrup. Be careful when you buy canned chestnuts, many come in a syrup which is not at all suitable for some dishes.)

This order was received within a few days of ordering and was very well-packed.

Soggy, water-logged crumbling into mush chestnuts. I know it says "in water" but I did not expect the chestnuts to be disintegrating. Best way to purchase them cooked and peeled is vacuum packed. It's a bit pricier and you'll probably have to stock -up during the holidays but the quality is leaps and bounds ahead of these.

Needed these as an ingredient in a dessert. It can in the can soaking in water. When handling it falls apart very easily. It seems a bit expensive for the amount. I will buy fresh chestnuts in the future and boil them myself for far less.
