Catholic Recipe: Chestnut Dressing
The Feast of St. Michael on September 29 has become a combined feast for the archangels Michael, Raphael and Gabriel. This feast is also called Michaelmas.
This chestnut dressing is a good companion for the Michaelmas or Martinmas goose.
If you need a good source for obtaining fresh chestnuts you can order them from the Correia Chestnut Farm.
Shell, skin, and boil the chestnuts in salted water until tender. Mix with the remaining ingredients and, if the stuffing appears to be too dry, moisten with 1/2 cup heavy cream.Recipe Source: Feast Day Cookbook by Katherine Burton and Helmut Ripperger, David McKay Company, Inc., New York, 1951
