PURVIA

    Posted by Giuseppe Martino on

    Ingredients:
    - wheat: kg 1
    - salt, oil q.b.
    Optional:
    - some tomatoes
    and parsley

    It is a very ancient dish now in disuse and almost unknown. It was prepared once a year, on December 13, the feast of Santa Lucia.
    This tradition wanted to pay homage to the martyr Saint to whom, during the persecutions against the Christians, her eyes were torn out and ground in a millstone. For this reason, on December 13, foods obtained by grinding were not eaten.
    Soak the wheat for one day, then boil it for a long time and dress it with abundant olive oil (at pleasure also with some spoonfuls of tomato and fresh parsley).
