Crustoli!!…. a South Italy swetness following mamma Rosa Recipe

March 5th, 2011

When we were child, not centuries ago, one of the biggest pleasures we had, for Christmas time, was a gentle gift of one of our neighbours, donna Rosa De Marco, under the form of a jar of Crustoli, a very interesting and tasty kind of small pies, prepared following the ancient recipe that, with all the possibilities, was coming from the ancient Greece culture, that dominated Calabria for centuries before the rising of Roman Empire.

Few days ago I got, finally, the recipe from mamma Rosa, and in the same afternoon I had the first batch of Crustoli ready for to be devoured by all the family, friends and some, selected client hereĀ  at Il Giardino.

In the today time, the presence of Rum, in the recipe, is, probably the alternative to some old liquor that is not possible to find anymore, but the final taste is still the one of my childhood.

You have two way for to be able to try this delicious pastry, one is sending us a request for the recipe, that I will publish in my next book of Il Giardino recipes, but i will anticipate for anybody is asking for it, with a step by step photographic sequence, or, come at Il Giardino and try it, maybe slightly warmed and covered with vanilla ice cream….. a real temptation!!!…Grazie Mamma Rosa!!
