So I am making a cornbread-chestnut stuffing. I made the cornbread from a mix in concession to a gluten-free family member. I tasted it when it came out of the oven and frankly, it was awful. However, we have used it before as topping for other dishes, and when combined with other stuff, seems to taste OK.
Then, I roasted and chopped the chestnuts. I wasn't impressed with them either. To me, they tasted like raw sweet potatoes.
Obviously, they will be combined with stock, herbs, and cooked in a turkey (yeah, turkey fat!) But considering that so far I hate the separate pieces, would I be wise to cook something else, or can I keep going and salvage this?
