Sorbs and Strawberry tree Fruits
Casola Valsenio is a beautiful town located in the hills behind Faenza, but mostly it is the site of a twenty-year old event: la Festa dei Frutti Dimenticati (the festival of forgotten fruits).
Azaroles, jujubes, sorbs, cornelian cherries, plum, pomegranates, quinces, cocomerine pears, a multitude of flavors and colors! The most striking thing is that this fruits have colors "different", more vivid, than the "standardized" fruits that we find in in the mall. And their taste, hard to explain in words, is somehow more basic, almost primitive, which allows to use them as ingredients in sauces and jams that go pretty well together with meat and cheese.
