They don’t look like much, but they tasted great, ricotta with rosemary butter, because the sage has vanished.

Grano arso is effectively smoked flour, although I don’t know whether they smoke the flour or scorch the grain, as history suggests

Grano arso is effectively smoked flour, although I don’t know whether they smoke the flour or scorch the grain, as history suggests. Either way it makes a beautifully dark loaf with a smoky aroma and sweetish crumb.

The internet couldn’t make its mind up

The internet couldn’t make its mind up. Cut an X. Cut a Y. Just a slit will do. Round the equator. Round the poles. Boil, steam, roast, microwave.

So, back to basics.

MTAOFC says to peel a strip (I cut a slit) put them in cold water, bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Then pull them out three at a time and peel. And by golly if it wasn’t pretty much OK. Better than boiling for longer and better than roasting.
