Old Venetian and Emilian Recipe
The word savor means flavour, in ancient Italian was used to name the sauce (in the rustic Tuscan dialects "savore" is a pesto made of walnuts and green grapes, used to serve with meat). In the farm houses it was preserved in small long neck demijohns and served as an energizer bread and dripping for the winter. Dense and dark, Savor is optimal to accompany sweet dishes, roasts and boiled beef.

Take 8 litres of black grape must and set them to boil until the must is dense and only 2 litres (approx.) remains. In this sugar concentrate set to boil 2,5 kilos of autumn fruit: pears, apples, quinces - peeled and cut into big pieces - figs, walnut and almonds, lemon zest, a bit of cinnamon. Then you proceed as you would for a regular jam. When the Savor has reached the desired consistency, it is poured -still boiling -into hermetic jars to preserve it.

Do not confuse with Mortadella
It is a type of pork sausage. It is made by gross grounding various parts of the pork (tongue, liver, pork neck, etc.), mixing the paste and shaping it as meat balls. Wrap them with a "roast wrap net".

The day before, put the beans in water. Set them to boil until, with the "ossa", the beans are cooked; take the "ossa" out of the pot and add onions, lard and add polenta. Cook as you normally cook polenta (approx 50 minutes, constantly stirring). Some families add rice to the mix. Serve very hot.
