    What 1 Other has said

    • Way too much water! I made chestnut puree myself without a recipe after foraging for sweet chestnuts - it was perfect. Thought I'd check and see what proportions were suggested. I'd guesstimate that 50 mls and add if necessary rather than 500mls of liquid. I had to add in another batch of chestnuts and then heat for another 20 minutes.
