Focaccia With Ham And Figs. I am actually grown in the shade of a fig. Just outside the front door of my house, during childhood, in the open countryside, there was a huge fig tree, high around 10 meters, with big leaves and green, dark on top and lighter on the bottom. Produced of the greatest fruits pear shape, They ranged from green to reddish color.
From small, my favorite snack could only be: Bread with ham and figs.
In my memory, appears still the image of the grandmother who expertly rolled the well-ripe figs within the same leaves to form the “salami with figs”. length about 20 cm, diameter 7/8 cm, It is tied with string in the same way with which it is linked the loin. Today the loin of figs is prepared yet for some wise old village where the old traditions. This salami with figs is recognized as a “traditional food product” of the Marche and is a garrison “Slow Food” from 1999. It is served cut into slices just as it gets with classic cuts, and gives off aromas and unique flavors, its taste is pleasantly sweet and you can feel the scents of dried figs.

Also in the kitchen the figs are very used. A recipe on the fly:
“Figà àea Venessiana” From the title it is clear that this ancient recipe belongs to the tradition Veneta. The origins actually date back to the Romans who were preparing the liver along with the figs in order to cover the strong odor.
By the time the figs have given way to the onions creating one of the most popular recipes in the Veneto region and beyond: The Venetian liver.
