Imbuljuta - Dried Chestnut Soup

Imbuljuta is the traditional Maltese drink served after midnight mass or on New Year’s Eve, filling the air with a spicy aroma of chocolate and citrus.



450-500g good quality dried chestnuts (in Malta they are called qastan tal-imbuljuta)

1 heaped tablespoon cocoa powder

150g caster sugar

a large piece of tangerine peel cut into thin strips or finely chopped



Wash the chestnuts and discard any faulty ones. Place in a large bowl with water to cover and leave to soak overnight. The next day, remove any loose pieces of skin.

Cook the chestnuts in the soaking water until tender. Add the other ingredients and continue cooking for about half an hour. It should be thick in 30 minutes but may need longer.

Adjust cocoa and sugar to taste. Serve hot in soup bowls. If desired you may also add a dash of Anisette before serving.
