Growing up with a big family, holidays were always so special. We had two sets of grandparents, and I can remember if, we didn't go to dinner we ended going for dessert later that day. My grandpa was Italian, and he was set in his ways and traditions. The one I can remember most us we never went in that house, without kissing him.
Thinking of all the family, we have lost and all the traditions we had, the other thing that sticks out is we always had Panettone for dessert. Recently I was able to try some and when I say some my husband ate the whole thing.
Before industrialization, panettone (literally, “big bread”) was made in local bakeries or at home, and it was a laborious, time-consuming task. Traditionally, the father, or head of the household, would mark a cross at the top of the tall loaf of sweetened bread before it was placed in the oven, as a good omen for the coming year. And, still to this day, panettone retains a special aura, bringing a feeling of love, luck, and joy whenever it is offered.
Panettone is a dome-shaped Italian sweet bread studded with candied fruits, traditionally served as special treats for Christmas and Easter holidays. Giusto Sapore’s authentic Italian imported Panettone is made with butter and generous portions of raisins and candied orange peel. This light and airy two-pound round loaf. Considered a naturally leavened baked cake, Panettone is hung upside down while cooling to preserve its domed shape and light texture. It is enjoyed at breakfast or as a dessert – served plain or toasted with butter and powdered sugar.
You can use this to make french toast, bread pudding, and so many more awesome recipes, or just as it is with some jam and butter, the choice is yours.
