Preserving the season: Summer - Cooking with an Italian accent

Both my mum and my grandma influenced my love for preserving.It would be reductive to describe it as a habit or a hobby; I feel an ancient urge to bottle, can, or preserve whatever the season offers with abundance. It is my personal way to celebrate the passing of seasons: a hymn to seasonality, a respectful homage to the humble produce. Preserving is also one of my favourite way of procrastinating. When I am busy with deadlines and projects, this is when I try to steal time to preserve.Follow me to explore my mum’s pantry and my grandma’s memories, a walk through the best summer preserves, from tomato sauce to blackberry jam.Recipes mentioned in this episode:- Passata di pomodoro, tomato purée: - Pomarola, tomato sauce: - Concentrato di pomodoro, tomato paste: Apple and blackberry jam: - Apricot jam: - Harvest jam: - Blueberry jam: Spicy tomato jam: - Pickled cauliflower: - Minestrone from scratch: I’d love to hear from you: Which is your relationship with preserving?
