Using it up

Today, I collected another massive bagful of walnuts from the tree up the chemin (probably the last of them) and made an apple, walnut, apricot and date loaf which also used up some of the apples that seem to be lingering in the porch! The rest of the walnuts are still in their shells awaiting consumption at a later date. Then, it was onto the chestnuts ....I shelled the last kg or so and have this afternoon/this evening made sweet chestnut puree which will be just fantastic in desserts this autumn/winter. I have frozen probably four portions and have another 2 portions in the fridge. It is sweet but very very delicious! The marrons glacés should be ready tomorrow - it will be interesting to see how they turn out as it is the first time I have attempted these oh so French candied delicacies.
