“Marrons Glacés” are a very special treat. From careful harvesting to their meticulous transformation into a high-quality treat, each Corsiglia “marron” receives full attention.
Gourmets start thinking about “Marrons Glacés” in the first days of fall, when mushrooms appear under the trees and the steps of chestnut harvesters echo in the deep forests of the Var or Italy.
It is time to pick up the fruits, fallen from their prickly burr, and sort them before soaking them in water for 9 days. Damaged fruits naturally rise to the surface and are removed. The perfect chestnuts are placed in a cellar to dry for three weeks.
Then comes the next step: the chestnuts are slit, then steamed to remove their first layer of skin. Then each chestnut is inspected and any remaining piece of skin is removed manually from the grooves of the fruit.
