Cook the peeled chestnuts in boiling water for about 30 minutes, until soft then set aside, reserving the water for stock.
Meanwhile, spread out the mixed nuts on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for about 10 minutes, until lightly browned, stirring from time to time.
Coarsely chop the nuts and set aside.
