Marrons glacés - Day 6.

They are ready. They are conserved and you already can eat them. 
But, now, they must dry. 

Here the almost final step.

Step 1 : 
Strain the chestnuts and arrange the on a cooking grille, who will go in the oven the next day, for 3 minutes.

Step 2 :
With a tablespoon, top them with the syrup. Keep some syrup for tomorrow ! 

Let them dry in ambient temperature for 24 hours.

I've got some problems with Blogger today, I just hope to be able to post tomorrow. 

I'm trying to post all the recipes I'm doing for Christmas, but there's something else I did not think : It's very complicated to cook and post almost immediately after. 

On monday morning, I'm going to bake La Bûche de Noël (Yule log). I hope Blogger won't let me down !! :)

I hope everything is fine for you and you're preparing your Xmas period with joy. 
See you tomorrow ! 


  1. Ouah, they are BEAUTIFUL!!! I don't know how you can resist eating them right away :) If I had made them, there would be maybe one or two left, hehe...

    1. Thank you, Dr CaSo ! In fact, when I was a child, I made a bilious attach, so I can eat them anymore. I cook it for others. ;)

  2. You had a bilious attack? Yikes, I don't know what that is but it doesn't sound good! Does it mean you can't eat any sugar anymore?

    1. In fact, it was the translation found for "crise de foie" !!! It's seems more terrific with ATTACK :D
      It just mean I can't eat marrons glacés anymore. Not because I don't WANT, just because I cant :)
      Je n'entrerai pas dans les détails scabreux ;D

  3. Hi Axelle,
    You have been busy making delicious yummies for Christmas!
    Merry Christmas to you and your family!
    Wish you A Blessed and Happy New Year!

    1. ANd I still have the Bûche to bake and some tapenade for tonight !!
      I thank you for your visits, Joyce, and I wish you too a merry Xmas for you and all the people you love.
