This was one of the more popular preserves I have sold at my little market stall. It’s one of those condiments that brings sunshine to everything from what can be a boring sandwich to a basic tomato passata sauce.
The first time I tried Gnocchi my teeth were pasted ungraciously together for the rest of the day. Starchy, gruesome balls of inedible stodgy dough. However these little potato dumplings are not far removed from potato cakes, so if you have ventured in making the latter, you will be surprised how easy gnocchi is. Just be ready with lots of flour to prevent sticking and you can freeze any excess for a fast last-minute dinner.
