Zeapple Recipe

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

Zeapple Recipe

Postby Last » 21 Dec 2010, 18:02

Hi Everyone, my family made an Italian treat always at Christmas. They were made with anchovies and some with raisins. They would fry them in oil and they looked like little balls. My mom is having memory issues an can't remember how to make them. Our family comes from Montefusco Italy and I was wondering If anyone had a recipe to offer me. :)

In my family we had these at Easter without anchovies. My father made them with potato dough(I think) then fried them in oil & put powdered sugar on them
