Chestnuts and Artichokes in Sicily

The fall/winter season came quickly.  In November we had a very mild month and then all of the sudden we woke up one morning chilled to the bone with a storm.  We found Mt. Etna with a huge snow cap on it already!  During this time of year you start seeing a whole new batch […]
