I don't know where I found this gluten free chestnut flour. It sat in my cupboard for months and recently I decided to try it when my son became intolerant of rice, corn and potatoes. It has a delicious , creamy flavor and is my new favorite gluten free flour. Everyone thought the pancakes, crepes and cookies I made with it were yummy. I honestly don't even know what whole chestnuts taste like, but the flour is wonderful. After not finding it in several stores nearby where I might have purchased it, I ordered three bags from Gluten Free Mall today.
