Corsiglia Marrons Glaces in a Wooden Box

8 Marrons Glaces - France

Marrons Glacés, which translates to "glazed chestnuts" in French, have a rich history and are a traditional confection in France.

It is told that the confection was in created in the 16th century in the town of Privas in the Ardèche region. The Ardèche region is known for its sweet chestnuts, and the method of candying chestnuts was developed as a way to preserve them.

The process of making Marrons Glacés involves candying chestnuts in sugar syrup. This method not only preserves the chestnuts but also transforms their texture and flavor. The chestnuts are first blanched, then slowly candied in successive layers of sugar syrup until they become translucent and take on a sweet, delicate taste.

Marrons Glacés gained popularity in the 18th and 19th centuries and became associated with festive occasions and holidays. They are often enjoyed during Christmas and New Year's celebrations. In France, Marrons Glacés are exchanged as special gifts.
