The Days of the Blackbird by Karina Smiller

Mainz, DE


I've BEAN around the World
What better fits this time of year in January than a wonderful tasting and warming Ribollita, what means boiled again. Of course with lots of beans, white beans and in this recipe they are Great Northern Beans. In Italy, Cannellini Beans are used and the famous Ribollita comes from there, more precisley from Tuscany, but is popular throughout the country. Especially on the days of the blackbird, that are the last three days in January. Originally it’s a leftover soup which is served the next day with stale bread and sprinkles of olive oil.
