May is the month of Nature’s gifts and so I offer a free night at the B&B to the first foreigner who writes the English name of those juicy fruits. Have a go and pack your suitcase to taste them!
As soon as I read this water saving irrigation system based on plastic bottle recycling, I couldn’t resist to the idea of implementing it. So now the fresh herbs of sage and basil are only watered by this system that really need little water. And to make it even more sustainable in summertime, I use sea water instead of the precious stocked water from rainfall.
Curios to see it with your own eyes? Come and check it out!
It is time to wish farewell to the latest guests to leave the house, Vincenzo Simona and their 2 children. We had great time all together having dinner al fresco with mussels, prawns and wine. Time flies when you are having a good time, but Summer will come again and I trust you’ll be back, cheers!
I already mentioned that every month has its long waited favourite specialty. Well, june is month of capers. Early collected today from Primo Passo Sea Garden, they now get separated from stems and washed before drying out in sea salt for the next couple of day in cane basket. This procedure guarantees that capers remain dry when water flows out.
Stocked in glass jar, they will make guests happy for the whole years. Unique taste both with baked fish or meat stew. For now, enjoy the picture!
Have you emptied your zagara honey jar and don’t know what to do with it? Here an example. I just collected wild asparagous opposite to Primo Passo premises and place it in jar for the time needed to call my friend doctor Ernesto who lives nearby with his chicken pets! Few happy eggs, the boiled asparagous, some grated parmigiano our organic olive oil on the pan… and lunch on the terrace is served!
Ok, ok… you don’t have the sea view? Book with Primo Passo and meantime do not forget to recycle your glass jar in appropriate bins… it might find a new life, and so would you! Cheers
Here a visual recipee of what it is provided by Nature at this stage of the season. Fresh, organic, simple. Precious things in life come for free for those who can see them. Take your plate and raise a glass of wine or two!
