  • 1 pound roasted and peeled chestnuts
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon honey if desired


  1. Add the roasted and peeled chestnuts to a food processor fitted with the blade attachment.

  2. Blend until the chestnuts are a fine powder, about 2 minutes.

  3. Add the water and honey and blend until the chestnuts are a paste-like consistency, about 30 seconds.  It will likely all gather to one place in the food processor.
