Le Marche Christmas Tradition: the Frustingo

Le Marche Christmas Tradition: the Frustingo | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

Frustingo is one of the oldest recipes which come from the Etruscans who were in central Italy before Christ, but introduced the Christmas celebrations. This delicacy from Le Marche is called in many different ways depending on the town: ristingo or frustingo in Ascoli Piceno, frostengo in Macerata, pistingo or bostrengo elsewhere. Besides the richness of its ingredients, it’s considered part of the cucina povera (poor food), which means invented by farmers with what they had available. Here the recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1.1 lbs dried figs;
  • 2 oz peeled almonds;
  • 2 oz raisins;
  • 2 oz walnuts;
  • 2 tablespoons of honey;
  • one tablespoon sugar;
  • lemon peel;
  • one cup of extra virgin olive oil;
  • cinnamon;
  • nutmeg;
  • one tablespoon of bread crumbs;
  • 2oz of bitter dark chocolate.
