March 1, 2021

Preserving the Italian Way calendar of authentic Italian recipes

Join us each month as we celebrate Preserving the Italian Way with a free recipe. The author Pietro Demaio has matched the months and seasons with recipes from the book so you can get the best results all throughout the year.

This month, we’re celebrating March with figs. The best figs for drying are Turkish brown; the small green ones that are golden yellow to amber on the inside. Ideally you would grow them yourself, leaving them on the tree for as long as you can so they become as sweet as possible. But figs are widely available at farmers’ markets when in season too.
