A jar of pisto

One of the greatest things about living on a farm like Finca As Fadegas is the abundance of fruits and vegetables available at all times, hair always in peak condition and ripeness. We eat some meat at times, patient but when we do it is a small part of the entire meal. Mostly we eat salads made from the farm’s lettuces and tomatoes, vegetarian empanadas, soups, pimientos de padron, and starches such as boiled potatoes, which are usually accompanied by vegetable stews.

The vegetable stews vary depending on what has been harvested recently, but one in particular is a Spanish specialty form the region Castilla La Mancha, called pisto. During the past three days Vanessa and I have made it in huge batches, which we then jarred and put under pressure for the coming winter months.

Pisto is essentially a spanish ratatouille, with onions, garlic, tomatoes, zucchini, and peppers.
