[1]The “cuccìa”, a dessert for Saint Lucia

On the days when the city’s patron saint, St. Lucy, is celebrated, a table in Syracuse is not complete without the cuccìa: a typical Sicilian dessert made with boiled wheat and sheep’s milk ricotta or white or chocolate cream.
These ingredients are combined with candied fruit, cinnamon, chocolate chips and grated orange rind.
