My thinking cap was a little too tight when I tried to put this together. I thought chestnuts in a flan/custard with pomegranates would be really good. So, I roasted the chestnuts, peeled them and then simmered them in the custard base until soft, once soft I hit them with the immersion blender until disintegrated poured them into little cups and baked them off until set. The one above I tried a 'brule' type thing and below I turned it out on to a plate.
If looks could kill these custards would masacre and one bite would seal the deal - gritty from the chestnuts, unusual as a custard and so doesnt go with pomegranate. Hey I guess I put on the wrong cap.
Lucky thing I got some turkey products from Shady Brook Farms so we were resurrected with this turkey BLT. Nothing compares to bacon but this bacon was/is flavorful and texturally 'bacon-like' - all in all a decent sandwich after tasting that indecent custard!
