This was my last batch of chestnut flour (pity!) and I made the chestnut fritters that I always ate as a child in Italy. When I say always I mean every week in Autumn and Winter (and sometimes every day), I ate so many that for many years I didn't miss them, but now they are a special treat, as I need to source the flour in Italy!
The best thing about these fritters is that chestnut flour is naturally sweet, so no sugar is needed. Also these are vegan and gluten free, all you need is chestnut flour, water, sultana (optional) and some oil for frying. You can find the recipe here, if you can get some chestnut flour, that is :-). And if you do find it in New Zealand, please let me know!!
