- Aug 5, 2006Dear Bob,
I understand. When a wife is standing behind you, looking over your
shoulder, it's imperative to do everything to keep the family peace.
Nocino doesn't come from "nuocere" (italian verb to mean something
like to damage) but come from "noce", that is the italian word to
define the walnut. The "ino" mean little, nice but referred to what
you get from "noce".
There is a particular grapes named "uva fragola" (strawberry grape)
because smell and taste like strawberry. "Fragola" mean "strawberry".
The wine that they get from those grapes is named "fragolino".
My wife is Hungarian, and we have a lot of fun reading some recipes,
not for what he write, but for "how" he write, in such a very
official, old italian, ...
Anyway, thanks for the blurb you posted: explained something I
Ciao a tutti
