Sicilian Muffaletta Bread
I am a newbie and this is my first post. A friend suggested this website to help me find an authentic Sicilian Muffaletta bread recipe. I was born in Sicily and have fond memories of this bread from a bakery in our home town of Riesi. The Muffaletta bread I remember was a 8 or 9 inch round, flatish bread. It had anise seeds in it and was not overly dark in color, with a thin crust. The color was light, the texture was airy, like an english muffin, and it was more of a breakfast food. We used to cut them in half steaming hot from the bakery and eat them with a drizzle of good olive oil, salt and pepper. The flavor and aroma of the anise seeds with the olive oil was out of this world. If anyone has visited this region of Sicily or comes from there and knows what I'm talking about, I'd love to hear from you. If anyone might happen to have this recipe, please post it! Thank you!
