About this deal

If you can find sheep ricotta use half sheep and half cow ricotta. If you cannot find it you can use cow ricotta only. Savoury Pie Ideas Mix the flour and sugar together by pulsing in a food processor. Then add the lard or butter and pulse until you have a sand like texture. Then add the egg yolks and mix again until the dough forms a ball, adding a bit of water, spoonful by spoonful, if need be. Cover the dough ball with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes or until needed. Roll out the dough and line the pie plate: Diversamente da quanto si crede, non si tratta di una tradizione solo foggiana o solo pugliese. Con la denominazione di colva, o coliva, o colliba, il dolce è presente praticamente in tutto il resto della Puglia e del Mezzogiorno, con particolare riferimento a Basilicata, Calabria e Sicilia. E non solo. La “mappa” del grano dei morti disegna i confini di quella che era una volta la Magna Grecia, e proprio di origine ellenica sembra essere questo dolce, arcaico e archetipico. Now turn your attention to the filling. First, drain and rinse the grano cotto and put it in a saucepan with 250g of milk, a vanilla pod, a sprinkle of cinnamon and half of the orange zest. Heat on a low to medium flame for around 15 minutes, being careful not to let the milk boil over. Leave to cool. Roll the reserved ball of pastry into an even layer, then cut 8 strips out of it that are about 2cm wide and long enough to lay across the top of the cake tin.

Preheat the oven to 180ºC/375ºF (or 160ºC/320ºF if fan forced). Butter a 24 cm (9″) springform pan. Take the pasta frolla out of the refrigerator. Una volta però il grano per la pastiera si cuoceva direttamente in casa, non si comprava il grano in barattolo ma si cuoceva il grano “originario”, quello crudo, in modo da ottenere grano cotto come quello che oggi troviamo nei barattoli al supermercato. Roll the round of dough up with your rolling pin, the roll it out on top of a pie plate, which you will have greased well with a knob of lard or butter. (See Notes below about pie plate sizes). Using your fingers, make sure that the crust adheres to the sides. Cut off any excess dough that is hanging over the sides. (NB: A classic pastiera does not have any trimming around the edges.) Fill the pie plate and lay out the lattice topping: Rolling out whole wheat flour shortcrust pastry is not as easy as refined “white” flour pastry. In my experience, whole wheat pastry requires deft hands, plenty of flour, and a bench knife. Once in place, the strips are virtually impossible to move without them breaking. If you’re new to pie baking, you might use all purpose flour instead (the same amount). High extraction flour or a mix of all purpose and whole wheat flours are good intermediate options. Sempre mescolando molto lentamente aggiungi il grano cotto, le gocce di cioccolato, il cedro e infine l’acqua di fiori di arancio.

Butter - Unsalted butter is my preferred butter for recipes. You’d be surprised how much salt is in salted butter and what a difference it makes in a recipe. However if you only have salted butter, use that but don’t add any extra salt to the pie dough. Pasta frolla is a traditional Italian puie dough, and it is used in many Italian dessert recipes. As opposed to a North American pie dough, it has eggs in it, and sugar. It is more crumbly in texture and not flaky. Many elements go into Pastiera Napoletana but nothing is very complex or time-consuming Grano Cotto

First, a word about the soaked and cooked wheat berries. Purists insist on doing their own, but the vast majority of Italians who make pastiera at home use pre-cooked grano cotto which is sold in jars and easily available in most supermarkets. Should you wish to do it yourself, soak the wheat berries in daily changes of water for between three and five days, then drain, rinse, and bring to the boil in abundant hot water for around an hour. Fill the pastiera base with the filling and gently tap the pan on the counter to remove trapped air. To make the rice substitute for grano cotto, in a medium saucepan, bring to boil ¾ cup arborio rice with 2 cups of whole milkand a strip of lemon zest.Cut your shortcut pastry dough in two pieces, approximately 2/3 for the pastiera base and 1/3 for the lattice/gelosies. Next, add the cooled wheat cream to the bowl along with a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon orange blossom water, and 3 ounces of candied citron.
