Original Receipt from 'Pot-Luck; or, The British Home Cookery Book' by May Byron (Byron 1914)


Boil some chestnuts in water for two hours; remove the peel. Boil an equal amount of Brussels sprouts for half an hour, strain them well; be careful not to break them. Have ready a frying-pan with hot beef dripping or butter, put in both chestnuts and sprouts, and keep them moving until the fat is absorbed (do not brown them); then serve.
