Autunno!

 Although the climate  here tell us that is still summer (over 26° celcius),there are other signs that tell us Autumn is coming.....
chestnuts....smoking...
 .


 grapes harvested  ..ready to make  mosto for good red wine ...



and mosto  to make a good mostarda at home
here my manmmy's neighbour: recepy:
it's important to ferment the mosto putting  it together with wood's ashes for about 4 or 5 hours in a pan . and then make a pudding in the traditional way.
here my mammy has used some special old moulds to shape the mostarda...but she forgot to put a layer of minced almonds to decorate the top...Next time!!!!
