Preserving a way of life

preserved peaches Preserving and conserving is still a way of life here in San Giorgio. Norma, a neighbour, has bottled 70 kilos of tomatoes – no time for the beach. Monique, on holiday from New York, has spent two happy days helping her aunt cut, clean and bottle tomatoes. No shortage of tomato sauce for the pasta this winter.We have been slightly less ambitious. 8 bottles of tomato sauce using tomatoes from our garden, 10 jars of apricot and plum jam from fruit bought in the supermarket and last, but not least, a jar of “preserved pickled nectarines” ready to eat in the winter with our roast pork.
