In SICILIA…
… people let kids believe that if
they pray and they are good they
will then receive gifts from dead
people. It is called "u cesto di
morti", which means the basket
brought by the deads!
Of course, FOOD is an important
part of the Italian culture.
Some of the traditional
dolci
dei morti (sweets of the dead)
that they would make are:
“Ossa dei Morti”
(or literally “bones of the dead”)…
…obviously due to
their bone-like
appearance, but
they are just
crunchy almond
biscotti.
“Meini” or “Pan de Mei”
Almond & honey
cookies
“Fave dei Morti”
(or literally “beans of the dead”)…
Little bean-shaped
cakes made with
almonds.
in Sicily
“Pupi di zuccaro”
(or literally “dolls
made of sugar”)…
… and "Frutta di
Martorana", which means
marzipan made with almond
flour and shaped in any kind
of fruits and vegetable.
