How to recognize real Piemontese Corn biscuits?
The biscuits made by the Grandmothers once followed strict disciplines, the recipes were written in the manuals, kept with great secret in the drawers of the old kitchens. The recipe included raw corn flour, polenta, not the finest flour. Once in the mills the flours were not refined and so only a product was obtained by milling the Cereal.
In addition to the raw corn flour, a good amount of butter was used inside the recipe; it was a party when these types of biscuits were made and that is why this animal fat obtained from the milk of cows was used. Of course, it was produced at home with the churn. Do you know this tool? Once it was used to whip cream, surfaced from fresh milk, thus obtaining the butter, the real one.
We still use both butter and cream and milk, even within our recipe. We buy milk a few km away from our factory by the Fusero Agricultural Company.
