Thanksgiving Is Almost Here and That Means It’s Chestnut Soup Time

I have made this soup recipe every Thanksgiving (and usually Christmas too) for as long as I can remember. It is really, really good.

If you don’t want to go through the work of roasting and shelling chestnuts (an it can be pretty tedious) Williams-Sonoma (for one place) sells them in jars pre-peeled. I just bought two today for $15 each on sale.

Did I mention how good this soup is?

The smell of chestnuts warming over an open fire on a street vender's cart in New York is what makes NY at Thanksgiving and Christmas special.

Never had chestnut soup but bet it's great!

Thanks for posting, Anonymous. The chestnut soup is simply wonderful. I've been having it for 40+ years. If you buy the chestnuts in a jar from Williams-Sonoma it's really very little trouble to make and everyone who has ever tried it loves it. There's nothing else like it.
