Classic Italian Preserves, Frittate, and Other Tasty Treats

Italian cooking is very difficult to pin down -- almost every city and town has its specialties, and there are regional trends too; the end result is a huge number of local cuisines rather than a single national cuisine. However, there are some dishes that you will find almost everywhere, and that are now standards among the many Italian communities scattered across the globe.

Confettura di Lamponi e Pesche
Raspberries and peaches make for wonderful jam!

Conserva di Fragole
Home-made strawberry jam is easy to make, and much better than the commercial stuff.

Marrons Glacés
A home recipe for a delightful winter treat.

A classic hot and spicy condiment made with fruit.

Otherwise known as nougat, it's a classic Christmas treat made from almonds, honey, and egg whites.
