Savory Pumpkin Flan

Chef Jon Vaast

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Slice pumpkin in half, de-seed. Lightly salt the inside and drizzle with olive oil, place face down on baking sheet. Cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour until flesh is tender and scoops off the skin.

While the pumpkin is cooking, make a small x on the flat side of chestnuts, place on a baking sheet and cook along with the pumpkin for about an hour.

Place chestnuts in a bowl and cover with a damp towel for 30 minutes until chestnuts begin to open and you can then remove from the shells.

In medium pan over medium heat, begin to toast chestnuts making sure to shake the pan for about 5 minutes, then lightly salt, toss with butter and honey, place in oven for 5 minutes. Chestnuts should be golden brown. Give a final toss and set aside on a cooling rack in a baking pan. Once cool, chop.

In a medium sauce pan, sauté shallots and cubed apples until soft, then add half and half and bring to a boil. Once boiling point is achieved add the cooked sugar pumpkin flesh, and turn down to a simmer for 5 minutes.

In a blender blend apple, pumpkin, milk mixture until smooth.

In a large mixing bowl add the whole eggs and yolks along with a generous pinch of salt, sugar, a few swipes of nutmeg through a Microplane grater. Whisk to incorporate.

Next you will need to temper the hot mixture into the eggs by slowly adding the mixture into the egg bowl as you whisk. Be careful not to scramble the eggs.

Place the flan mixture into a loaf or round pan, in a water bath. Cover with tin foil and bake in the oven for 1 hour. You will know when the flan is ready if you poke it with a knife and it comes out clean.

Allow flan to cool to room temperature about 2 hours then top with chopped roasted chestnuts.
