Imported from Italy, our gluten-free chestnut flour is an earthy, uniquely textured flour that would be a fabulous addition to your pantry. Made from dry roasted chestnuts, this versatile flour can be incorporated into a range of recipes. Blending chestnut flour into pie crust yields a sweet, slightly nutty flavor while using chestnut flour in cakes, cookies and sweet breads adds density and heartiness.
Chestnut Flour in Italian Cuisine
Chestnut flour is prevalent in certain regions of Italy. Some Italians use chestnut flour to make crepes, which are called necci, and are served plain or with ricotta and honey. Castagnaccio is a subtly sweet chestnut cake from Tuscany made of only chestnut flour along with pine nuts, raisins and rosemary.
Fabuloso!Emma, Highwood, IL
I use this for making gluten free pancakes and waffles. I mix it with almond flour and a small quantity of banana flour. It makes pancakes and waffles that most closely approximate the texture of ones make with AP flour.Kelly, Coral Springs, FL
