    GinnyP's Note:

    This is a rich, spicy soup taken from "Pike Place Market Cookbook" which took it from "The Chestnut Cookbook" whose author is Annie Bhagwandin. Annie and her husband, Omroa, can be found selling their wares at "Northwest Chestnuts" at Pike Place Market. A portion of their profits goes toward the promotion of environmentally sound agriculture and ALL proceeds from "The Chestnut Cookbook" go toward the promotion of tree crops.

      I made this as a test run for my Thanksgiving dinner, well... it made it, BIGTIME, I followed the recipe exactly and you could not ask for a more delicious, creamy, wonderful soup. This will be the first course on my table. Thanks so much for the recipe!

      Very tasty. I chopped up the chestnuts into pea-sized pieces (my husband has an issue with foods' "texture"). We added a bit of Franks Hot Sauce which made it even tastier.

      Rich is right. Without the cayenne and nutmeg it might have been a little bland -- but these gave it a nice touch. Thanks for helping me use a leftover package of chestnuts in a way I would never have thought of.
