Marron glacé are precious, tiny delicacies. Chestnuts are candied with syrup and then glazed with sugar: it is a complex process consisting in several manual steps that need to be carried out extremely carefully to avoid breaking the chestnuts.
Marron glacé by La Castagna Leopoldina are a true celebration of this craftsmanship. Only the biggest prime-quality chestnuts of the chestnut orchard are slowly candied in this Tuscan farm’s creative lab.
In order to make marron glacé, chestnuts are enveloped in a tulle fabric by hand and gradually candied over several days. Once this delicate step has been completed, they are covered by a thin layer of glaze and individually packaged, like precious flavourful gems.
