  • About

This versatile sauce from Carnia pairs well with ricotta cheese, with grilled or roasted pork, or with pastries such as Friulian Apple Cake. It is more a relish than a sauce. Traditionally it is made in a food mill, but you may use a blender or food processor so long as you pulse rather than puree it. If you liquefy the ingredients, the sauce will lack the texture it needs.
