Caragnoli are not only Molise Christmas sweets but also perfect sweets for carnival.
Italian cuisine is made up of more or less known typical products. Among these are the caragnoli, a typical product of Molise prepared for both Christmas and Carnival . The preparation is really simple and requires very few ingredients: flour, eggs, sugar and oil mixed and fried and then covered with abundant honey .
Recognized as PAT or Traditional Agri-food Product , Caragnoli with honey resemble other typical recipes of southern Italy such as mostaccioli, with the only difference that a certain manual skill is required to prepare them. In fact, the loaves must be twisted around a spindle before being fried and covered with honey. Let’s see all the steps together.
How to prepare the recipe of Molise caragnoli
- Break the eggs into a bowl and beat them for a few minutes with the electric whisk.
- Then add the sugar and oil, always stirring, and then the flour and yeast. Knead first in the bowl then on the pastry board for 5 minutes until you get a homogeneous dough.
- Let it rest for 30 minutes under an inverted bowl.
- Then remove portions of the dough and form loaves of one centimeter in diameter and about 20 long. Roll half of them around the handle of a wooden spoon then take the end and pass it outside the handle, joining it with the start of the loaf. Remove gently and set aside.
- Fry these quick and easy sweets in boiling seed oil for about 30 seconds then drain and pass them on absorbent paper.
- Melt the honey in the microwave or in a double boiler and sprinkle your caragnoli.
Among the other carnival sweets that we recommend you try are the classic chatter .
Caragnoli should be eaten as soon as they are made, within a maximum of 24 hours .
