Inspired by the famous dessert of the island of Capri, the biscotto accentuates the fruit typical of Mediterranean baking. With Pizzuta d’Avola almonds.
Almonds have always been an essential ingredient in Italian confectionary. Literary texts in all the countries of the Mediterranean refer extensively to these nuts, which have been cultivated since ancient times and are generally processed with honey, milk and fresh or dried fruit. Almonds are harvested by beating the branches of the almond tree with long rods, in the period between July and August, causing the nuts to fall onto large sheets spread on the ground. There are several almond cultivars, but the most popular is the famous Pizzuta d'Avola. Cultivated in the areas surrounding the town of Noto, the Pizzuta d'Avola is also the most widely used almond in the local confectionery industry, since it has a slightly bitter taste that is ideal for balancing out the sometimes cloying sweetness of candy.
