A Meal Three Days in the Making: Castradina for Thursday's Festa della Salute

All of the ingredients for this first night of castradina preparation

There's a bit more to post about last week's severe acqua alta, but that can wait at least a day, as today is the day one must begin preparing castradina, the traditional meal eaten on the Festa della Salute on November 21.

I wrote about what castradina is, and its background, and my first time making it--as well as a bit about the Festa della Salute itself--six years ago, and rather than repeating myself I'll just post a link to that post here.

Besides, I now have to go check that I've got the castradina boiling well, not to much, not too little, for the next two hours.
