Peking Dust Recipe (Chestnuts)

Peking Dust (Chestnuts) Recipe

A very simple dish but very delicious.

Ingredients :

500 g fresh chestnuts, peeled

300 ml cream

4 tablespoons superfine sugar

Glazed walnuts

 

Method :

Fill a pot with water and bring to the boil, covered. Add the chestnuts and simmer for 25 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool. Remove all traces of the thin inner skin on the chestnut. Add the cream to the caster sugar and whip until it forms a soft peak. Fill 8 dessert dishes with a spoonful of cream each. Chop the warm chestnuts into very fine pieces to represent the 'dust'. Use a spoon to sprinkle a lot of the chopped chestnuts over the cream. Top with a glazed walnut if preferred.
