Clement Faugier Chestnut Cream (250g)

Noemie's Pick

The chestnut cream by Clement Faugier is one of France’s most beloved jams. Clement Faugier started his company by making candied chestnuts (marrons glacés), a difficult and labor-intensive process. Throughout production, he discovered that candied chestnuts often broke, leaving him with many small pieces that he could not sell. In 1885, he decides to cook the candied chestnuts scraps by adding unprocessed chestnuts, sugar and glucose syrup, and blending it until it creates a smooth texture, similar to Nutella (but not as sweet!). The recipe is an overnight success, and has been left unchanged ever since.

To this day, Clément Faugier only produces chestnut treats and the production is still located in Ardèche in the heart of the French chestnut country. Discover chestnut jam on a crepe, a slice of bread, or in plain yogurt. Spread it just like you would use any jam!

Perfect spread with tea

My family loves roasted chestnuts and chestnut/chocolate torte. I could not resist when I saw that Noemie had a chestnut Cream in her Pantry. It is perfect. Not too sweet with very nice mild chestnut flavor. It pairs beautifully on toasts with tea. It also is a nice spread on the St Michel Sea Salt Galettes. I am certain that I will be purchasing this again. For now, I am trying to keep it for myself.

Give this a try!!

I was a bit skeptical about trying this - I like chestnuts, but wasn't sure what to make of chestnut jam. I had no idea how much I would love it!! It's a great snack or dessert, and particularly good in yogurt of all things.
