I have a question about the recipe "Chestnut Cream (Crème de Marrons) " from Catherine Lamb. Does this freeze well? How long does it keep, refrigerated?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Nancy is a trusted home cook.
I've always had it fresh (at home & in many restaurants).
Some recipes say it can hold 1 day in fridge, others say maybe up to 3 days.
I don't know about freezing.
Thanks Nancy! I was thinking of making this since I got some chestnuts from my farmer's market, but I don't have anything in mind to use the cream in. Maybe I'll think on it before I cook the chestnuts...
Cooked chestnuts last a little bit longer - 3 to 5 days in fridge - and I think do ok in freezing.
So you could cook some, then prepare a chestnut cream (aka Mont Blanc) closer to day you plan to serve it as dessert.
Great ideas, thanks! Now that you mention it, there's a mont blanc tart sort of thing in Yottam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh's new baking book which I got recently.
