    Gluttonous Chestnuts - Typical recipe from the peasant tradition of the Bologna Apennines. It was a great digestive drink after a meal, in front of the fireplace; elderly people enjoyed them while telling "crazy things", or fables about the woods.
    Ingredients: 500 g of chestnuts, 600 g of water, 500 g of sugar, 2 cloves, a pinch of cinnamon, the peel from half a lemon and half an orange, 1/2 liters of “Mandorla Amara” liquor, 100 g of 95° alcohol for desserts.
    Preparation: roast the chestnuts and peel them. Meanwhile, in an enamel pot, boil the water with the sugar for 2 minutes, along with the cloves, cinnamon and the lemon and orange peels. Turn off the heat and add the liquor and the alcohol and let it cool. Fill the jars with the roasted chestnuts until 3/4 full, then cover them with the liquid mixture previously prepared and hermetically seal them. Let them sit in a cool place for at least 3 months.
