Holiday Cooking: Sicilian Fig Cookies

Yay! More Depression Era Cooking from Clara! This lady and her family warm me to the bones. I don’t watch for the recipes so much as the stories, personality and to get a glimpse into her kitchen. The stove reminds me of my childhood. So do other little things here and there like the mixing bowls!

  1. I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of this before. She’s adorable. It scares the tar outta me the way she cuts everything in her hands like that!

  2. Haha. Yes! I thought the same thing when I saw her cutting up stuff in her hands too. What was her reason? Depression meant no cutting boards or something like that. I think I’d use a plate then 🙂

  3. Clara, your such a wonderful lady. I really enjoy watching your videos. Keep them coming. I can’t wait to watch your next one.

    My mom cuts her stuff up in her hands too. She even peels her pototoes with a paring knife. They probably didn’t have cutting boards back then. Must be something from that generation.
