Italians love it. Flowers (zucchini ore pumpkin) are good fried in batter. Prepare creamy batter (mix water 275 ml, Flour 185 g, Salt, Seed oil).
Heat oil in a saute pan over medium high temperature. Dip several blossoms in batter and fry them for a few minutes in boiling oil. Nice and easy.
“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” – Henri Matisse
It produces gorgeous, night-blooming, white, fragrant flowers. It is easy for cultivation and good for participants.
The flowering lasts one day, but it’s worth it.
It is the country antique recipe. Typical of the countryside of Italian Emilia and one of the best condiment for adding to an infinite number of dishes: from baked potatoes to roast chicken, grilled meat, the base of the sauce for pasta, soups, salads. It is easy to prepare: wash and dry rosemary, Salvia/sage, Laurus (to taste). Mixer the herbs, 1 clove of garlic, black pepper with coarse salt (to taste) and put it in a closed glass jar (to be kept for one year in a dark place) or in plastic bags (in freezer). I add it in Friggione and Croutons too.
I was glad to share with you!
In my garden today
Our grandmothers had great respect for bread and they were very able to use it in the kitchen. I must cook chicken every day for my dog (has allergies) and so I have meal soap every day. Soap with croutons is good and healthy dish for my family.
Cut the leftover bread into cubes about 2 cm per side, put the cubes on a baking sheet with oil, mix gently to cover the bread in a uniform way. Add salt and oregano. Mix everything and put into hot oven for a few minutes until the bread is crisp and absorb the smell of oregano. You can serve the croutons for appetizers, at meal or vegetable soup.Easy, good taste and looking food. Try!
It is time to plant onion (I plant it too). The onion has been used from 5000 BC, we have tried a lot of recipes. I propose a dish typical of Bologna-Friggione (from 1886). It’s a good dish to be enjoyed in the winter (heating) and in summer (I like cold) and easy to prepare. It is a sauce served with crusty bread, potatoes, meat, pasta.
For the classic recipe we need of : 4 kg of white onion, 1 box of tomatoes (I also use the tomato sauce), salt, sugar, 2 spoon of vegetable oil. Slice the onion and put it in a pot with plenty of water and sugar and leave the onion to soak for a couple of hours – this makes it easier to digest (throw the water). Cook the onion with oil on very low heat until the onion is cooked (if necessary – add hot water), add salt and tomatoes, and proceed with cooking for a couple of hours. The dish is ready! Easier than this! Enjoy your meal!
