The chestnut cream by Clement Faugier is one of France’s most beloved treat. Clement Faugier started his company by making candied chestnuts (marron glaces), a difficult and labor-intensive process. Throughout production, he discovered that candied chestnuts often break, 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 a huge success, and has been left unchanged since.
To this day, Clément Faugier only produces chestnut sweets and the production is still located in Ardèche in the heart of France's chestnut country. Chestnut jam tastes amazing on a crepe, a slice of bread, or even as a dollop in plain yogurt. You can also use it to make a “Mont Blanc”, a delicious French dessert!
