Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup Port wine
  • Thyme leaves, chopped
  • 2 pounds chestnuts
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper
Directions

Heat a large heavy saucepan. Add the oil, butter, and chopped onions. When onions turn slightly brown, deglaze with port wine. Add thyme, chestnuts, chicken stock, and a little salt and pepper. Cover and cook until chestnuts are tender and the chestnuts have absorbed most of the liquid.

Serve as whole braised chestnuts or pass through a ricer and make a wonderful chestnut puree.
