Made from ground dried chestnuts, chestnut flour has a dense, silky texture and earthy flavor with decidedly sweet, nutty notes. Depending on how the nuts are dried before grinding, the flour may also have a hint of smokiness too. Great for making pastries, cookies, and cakes, chestnut flour can also be used in savory applications such as pastas, gnocchi, and breads, where this gluten-free flour adds flavor, density, and heartiness. The United States imports most of its chestnut flour from Italy, as this once-prolific tree has been all but wiped out domestically by blight. Store chestnut flour in an airtight container in the freezer for up to six months.
