Chestnut soup

Soup from chestnuts? We never tasted it but read about it on the internet. So we started trying it out and we loved the nutty flavor of it. We experimented with the flavors, added sage and decided to publish the recipe. Delicious.

Chestnut soup

There are two types of chestnuts. Wild and sweet. You can roast sweet chestnuts, but you can also make soup from them, for example. We did that and it is very nice. It is mainly an autumn and winter soup. A surprising appetizer.
