Blackcurrant and chestnut verrines

Here they are combined in a verrrine, with a blackcurrant crémeux and chestnut mousse, served with a little sablé biscuit.

Remarks
You can use a different fruit instead of blackcurrants in the crémeux, but do try to keep to something with a hint of acidity (raspberries, currants, etc.), to contrast with the chestnut flavour.
Keeping
