The clarified butter recipe is easier than you think and will change your way of cooking! People prefer mostly to fry with oil or common butter, but clarified butter permits to reach high temperatures, maintaining the flavor of the sweet cream butter. Don’t you believe me? Try it on! You need just a single ingredient, a good pot, a thermometer and a sieve 🙂
This Easy tomatoes sauce is so tasty and fast to prepare! Tomatoes are cooked along with garlic and sweet basil, just the time to soft them. The more tomatoes are ripe, the more sauce will be delicious! To prepare this recipe a vegetable mill is not mandatory, but I strongly suggest to use it. A blender works fine as well, but the sauce texture will be not the same!
Finally is time to prepare the fig jam! This compote is one of my favorites. It’s good simply spread on a bread slice, but it’s even better with tasty and creamy cheeses, like Brie, and Carembert, and Taleggio, and Gorgonzola. Let me give you a little tip: prepare a sandwich with toasted bread, San Daniele prosciutto, aged Gorgonzola and fig jam, you’ll be one step closer to paradise!

Homemade preserved vegetables in oil remind me some moments from my childhood: a kitchen tables full of vegetables, aunts, grandmothers, cousins, and brothers intent to peel and cut, acrid smells in the air and the atmosphere of a peasant festival. A lot of work and waiting weeks before sampling the product of our toil, but it is so good, really better than the preserved sold at the store! Today I prepare artichokes in one of the many classic Italian versions (because basically every Italian family has its own recipe “classic”!). To savor this delicacy is indispensable to perform certain steps strictly in order to avoid dangerous contamination.
