Cinzia, this is the way my mother made the dish. My father taught her to cook Italian. His mother was from Alberobello and his father was from Palmi, RC.
I recall her salting the slices and stacking them with a weight on top. This is probably why mine never tastes as good - I don't do that. I'll have to go back to the original recipe.
Thanks so much.
You are so very welcome! Great towns both, where your grandparents were from, amazing food there. I am glad you can appreciate true, traditional cucina italiana.
