Pellorce & Jullien’s chestnuts in syrup are the fruit of a special production process that yields:
∙ A wonderful texture of the chestnuts for a light mouthfeel
∙ Very little breakage in the tin, as well as while handling the chestnuts
Glaze your chestnuts yourself!
∙ Place the whole or broken chestnuts in syrup on a rack. Preheat the oven to 40°C. Put the chestnuts in the oven for about 15 minutes. Mix 100 g of fondant icing with 250-300 g of syrup from the chestnut tin.
∙ Heat the mixture to 48-50°C (81 Brix on a refractometer).
∙ Dip the chestnuts in the icing and place them on an oven rack, on top of an aluminium sheet pan. Put them in the oven at 180°C.
