A Simple French Breakfast
I have been saving this can of Chestnut Spread for a couple of weeks. This morning I decided to open, since I only have two slices of this yummy bread left from a loaf that I picked up in a bakery in Chinatown. Sweetened chestnut spread is a specialty of the department of Ardeche in the south east of France. Established in 1882 in Ardèche, France's most prominent chestnut region, Clément Faugier has remained a local family-owned business to this day.
It is made from chestnuts, pieces of candied chestnuts, sugar, glucose syrup, and vanilla , and is fat free! You can spread on toast, brioche, pancakes, perfect for crepes, scones, put on ice cream, use in baking.
