Soups & Sauces » Chestnut Soup w/ King Oyster Mushrooms
Nothing is more comforting than the flavor of nutty chestnuts during cold weather months. Ben Hasty uses roasted chestnuts to make a velvety soup at his family's quintessential Maine farm. He enhances the sweetness of the chestnuts with spiced rum and apple cider. A creamy soup without the cream? Ben's secret is to purée potatoes into the soup. King oyster mushrooms sautéed with fresh ginger and thyme add the finishing textured touch.
