Saturnia Cup

This post is also available in: Italiano

This cup comes as a reminder of the many moments I spent with my friend Marzia and our families at the thermal baths of Saturnia. The Maremma region in Tuscany provides the perfect setting for this place. A location where the man was able to keep up to date with a balance between farmland and wilderness. It is quite spectacular to look out admire the large oak trees that rise in the middle of wheat fields.

In my opinion the Thermal bath park helps to cure “beauty” both physically and mentally and has several dining options. Over the years they have tried to provide menus that feature healthy and read into the full philosophy of the place.

Since the early days we could always look forward to this delicious cup of natural yogurt combined with various ingredients that compose each at one’s pleasure. I propose that the combination was my favorite. The cup can also be served as a dessert to end the meal on the table when there are people who do not like sweets as a snack or even a meeting between friends.

I could also call it “nostalgia” because due to the various facts of life, it has been awhile since we’ve been able to travel to that magical place.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
(Serves 4)

1 pound of strawberries
28 oz of compact natural yogurt
4 tablespoons pine nuts
4 tablespoons of acacia honey

  1. Wash the strawberries and cut them into pieces.
  2. In a nonstick frying pan over high heat toast the pine nuts for a few minutes, they will have some specks of brown, let them cool on paper towel.
  3. Distribute the strawberries in 4 glass cups, add the yogurt on top, drizzle the honey, and finally the pine nuts. Serve immediately.
