The taste of trumpet!

Directly from Albenga in Liguria and in this period between the raw materials of the Rural Market, is the zucchini Trombetta. Of a pale green colour, takes its name from the shape and the fact that growing spontaneusly trumpet shaped, tends to backfire. In the final part of the pumpkin seeds are concentrated, so almost its entirety consists of firm flesh and firm fit for this for many preparations in the kitchen. From pies, fried, stuffed, battered or as a pasta sauce. The sweet and delicate taste, higher than that of common Zucchini, allows to consume raw, especially topped with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Its sweetness comes from his own species, that of the pumpkin. Her flowers then ... large and bright yellow, are yummy! Highly digestible, has excellent: rich in calcium, phosphorus and iron. Available to the Rural Market of Parma and Radda in Chianti.
