domenicacooks Red spring onions and swirly garlic scapes, known in Abruzzo as "le zolle." Scapes are often pickled and served as an antipasto with cheese & salumi. Tonight I'm putting them in a frittata, using a recipe from @juliadellacroce's book Umbria. #italianfood #abruzzo #umbria #cucinaitaliana #zolle #farmersmarket #preservingitaly #gloriousvegetables 2d

domenicacooks Young garlic displayed at the #farmersmarket. Fresh, crisp and milder than the aggressive old garlic sold at most supermarkets. Isn't it gorgeous? I love market day. #garlic #aglio 2d

domenicacooks Plenty of #pickles to accompany roast chicken. In Italy, vegetables are often preserved "sott'olio" (in oil) or "sott'aceto" (in vinegar), or a combination of both. Here we have zucchini, mushrooms, red cabbage, beets, eggplant, and classic giardiniera (mixed garden vegetables). #preservingitaly #preserves #vegetables #vinegar #oil #whpedibleart 5d
