Description

Natural Italian Chestnut Flour

The Giannetti Artisans Tuscan Natural Italian Chestnut Flour tells a wonderful story of the past. The chestnut tree has fed entire populations in the mountain regions of Italy. Correspondingly, it was “the bread making tree” of areas like Garfagnana since its “fruits” (chestnuts) created work opportunities for many people. 

Emigration phenomenons and a progressive abandonment of these areas have contributed to a drastic reduction of the chestnut production. As a consequence, our Chestnut Flour is quite exclusive since it is not easy to find. Chestnut Flour of Garfagnana can have a white color or a dark ivory color. Our Chestnut Flour has a sweet taste characterized by a light bittersweet aftertaste. It is important to realize that Chestnuts are carefully picked and selected. Henceforth, a “metato”(covered drying area/house) dries our delicious chestnuts for 40 days at a constant temperature of 86°F. See Metato: https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metato .

Our producer stone grinds chestnuts once dried. Texture is fine to your palate. Traditional recipes of Old World Garfagnana such as “Castagnaccio” are available for the correct use of our extraordinary Natural Tuscan Chestnut Flour in the recipe page of our website. Check it out! https://giannettiartisans.com/giannetti-artisans-chestnut-pie-recipe-castagnaccio/

Ingredients: 100% stone ground chestnuts. 1lb Pack. (17.63 OZ) 

*Producer grinds chestnuts in its own machine in the same facility that also grinds spelt flour (wheat). Although grinding is done on separate machines, particles of spelt flour could be present within the Chestnut Flour.

    This chestnut flour is what chestnut flour should be! Nutty and sweet bringing out the flavor of chestnuts. Very fresh. Its excellent., Enjoyed chestnut flour fritters with ricotta for brunch. I have recommended to friends from Tuscany and will purchase again. Looking forward to making gnocchi or tagliatelle with this chestnut flour. Served with walnut-cream sauce or pesto–delizioso!
