Marrons Glaces

Marrons glaccs (mah-rhon glah-say) are an expensive French delicacy of preserved and sugar-coated chestnuts. Peeled whole chestnuts are poached for several hours in a syrup with a very high sugar content – the chestnuts become almost transparent, but remain firm. They are then drained and coated with a thick syrup which has been whipped to a froth.

Because of the considerable time and effort involved in the making of marrons glaces, they are seldom made at home.
