Pasta con broccolo in carrozza alla palermitana, la nonna svela cosa aggiungere a fine cottura: “diventa una crema”

La pasta con broccolo in carrozza è una ricetta tipica della Sicilia, ma non ha nulla a che vedere con la mozzarella. Quando sentiamo il termine ‘carrozza’ in cucina infatti ci viene subito in mente il latticino impanato e fritto. Sicuramente una bontà, ma in Sicilia la parola viene utilizzata in modo diverso. In questo primo infatti a essere cucinato in carrozza è il pangrattato, che viene tostato a formare una mollica. Nei tempi passati questa ‘muddica atturrata’ veniva utilizzata dai poveri in sostituzione del formaggio grattugiato, che era un ingrediente all’epoca molto costoso.

Pasta con broccolo in carrozza, Ingredienti

  • bucatini 400 g
  • cavolfiore verde 1
  • pomodori pelati 3
  • filetti di acciuga 3
  • uva passa e pinoli 1 pugnetto
  • cipolla mezza
  • pangrattato 1 pugnetto
  • olio q.b.
  • sale q.b.
  • pepe q.b.

Preparazione

La prima cosa da fare per la preparazione di questo primo piatto di pasta è pulire il broccolo. Eliminate la base e le foglie esterne e prelevate soltanto le cimette. Tagliatele e fatele cuocere in abbondante acqua salata. Devono diventare morbide ma non perdere la loro consistenza. Intanto potete passare alla preparazione del condimento.

Tritate finemente la cipolla e fatela soffriggere insieme all’olio extravergine di oliva. Unite le acciughe e aspettate che si sciolgano completamente. Tagliate i pelati a dadini e versateli in padella insieme all’uvetta e ai pinoli. Intanto scolate i broccoli e teneteli da parte. Mentre il sughetto sta cuocendo, potete passare alla preparazione della ‘muddica atturrata’. Versate il pangrattato in una padella che avete riscaldato bene e fatelo tostare. Quando diventerà dorato, spegnete il fuoco e aggiungete un cucchiaio di olio.

Mischiate finché l’olio non sarà stato completamente assorbito. Il sughetto è ormai pronto e gli ultimi minuti di cottura dovete aggiungere anche il broccolo. Quindi, scolate la pasta al dente e aggiungetela in padella. Amalgamate il tutto. Impiattate e condite con il pangrattato in ‘carrozza’. La vostra pasta è pronta per essere servita.

Man has relied on copper since prehistoric times. It is a major industrial metal with many applications due to its high ductility, malleability, and electrical conductivity.

Many new technologies critical to fighting climate change, like solar panels and wind turbines, rely on the red metal.

But where does the copper we use come from? Using the U.S. Geological Survey’s data, the above infographic lists the world’s largest copper producing countries in 2021.

The Countries Producing the World’s Copper

Many everyday products depend on minerals, including mobile phones, laptops, homes, and automobiles. Incredibly, every American requires 12 pounds of copper each year to maintain their standard of living.

North, South, and Central America dominate copper production, as these regions collectively host 15 of the 20 largest copper mines.

Chile is the top copper producer in the world, with 27% of global copper production. In addition, the country is home to the two largest mines in the world, Escondida and Collahuasi.

Chile is followed by another South American country, Peru, responsible for 10% of global production.

Rank Country 2021E Copper Production (Million tonnes) Share
#1 🇨🇱 Chile 5.6 27%
#2 🇵🇪 Peru 2.2 10%
#3 🇨🇳 China 1.8 8%
#4 🇨🇩 DRC 1.8 8%
#5 🇺🇸 United States 1.2 6%
#6 🇦🇺 Australia 0.9 4%
#7 🇷🇺 Russia 0.8 4%
#8 🇿🇲 Zambia 0.8 4%
#9 🇮🇩 Indonesia 0.8 4%
#10 🇲🇽 Mexico 0.7 3%
#11 🇨🇦 Canada 0.6 3%
#12 🇰🇿 Kazakhstan 0.5 2%
#13 🇵🇱 Poland 0.4 2%
🌍 Other countries 2.8 13%
🌐 World total 21.0 100%

The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and China share third place, with 8% of global production each. Along with being a top producer, China also consumes 54% of the world’s refined copper.

Copper’s Role in the Green Economy

Technologies critical to the energy transition, such as EVs, batteries, solar panels, and wind turbines require much more copper than conventional fossil fuel based counterparts.

For example, copper usage in EVs is up to four times more than in conventional cars. According to the Copper Alliance, renewable energy systems can require up to 12x more copper compared to traditional energy systems.

Technology 2020 Installed Capacity (megawatts) Copper Content (2020, tonnes) 2050p Installed Capacity (megawatts) Copper Content (2050p, tonnes)
Solar PV 126,735 MW 633,675 372,000 MW 1,860,000
Onshore Wind 105,015 MW 451,565 202,000 MW 868,600
Offshore Wind 6,013 MW 57,725 45,000 MW 432,000

With these technologies’ rapid and large-scale deployment, copper demand from the energy transition is expected to increase by nearly 600% by 2030.

As the transition to renewable energy and electrification speeds up, so will the pressure for more copper mines to come online.

Crostata alla marmellata di mamma Natalia: Il segreto per farla morbidissima e friabile, cosa si aggiunge all’impasto

crostata-alla-marmellata-di-mamma-natalia:-il-segreto-per-farla-morbidissima-e-friabile,-cosa-si-aggiunge-all’impasto

Spesso io e la mia mamma prepariamo dei dolci insieme. Oggi abbiamo preparato una buonissima crostata alla ciliegia, morbida e friabile. Consiglio sempre di fare i dolci in casa, piuttosto che comprarli in quanto in primis vi divertite e vi dilettate a cucinare e poi sapete con sicurezza gli ingredienti che andate ad utilizzare. La preparazione della nostra crostata è molto semplice, il trucco sta tutto nella pasta frolla. Noi come marmellata abbiamo utilizzato quella della Zuegg che è davvero ottima, soprattutto quando diventa calda.

Crostata alla marmellata, Ingredienti per una teglia quadrata bella grande.

  • 400 g di marmellata ciliegia  (o qualsiasi altro gusto preferite)
  • 4 uova
  • 500 g di farina
  • 125 g di burro
  • 1 bustina lievito pane degli Angeli
  • 300 g di zucchero
  • 1 pizzico di sale

Preparazione

Per prima cosa bisogna preparare la pasta frolla. Dunque, in una ciotola o su un piano (dopo aver creato una montagnetta di farina) mettete tutti gli ingredienti suindicati, tranne la marmellata. Mescolate e impastate per bene fino a creare un panetto. Dopodiché fatelo riposare in frigo per circa un’ora. La pasta frolla, se volete, potete prepararla anche la sera prima e lasciarla in frigo per tutta la notte.

Dopodiché stendete per bene, con un mattarello, il panetto di pasta frolla per iniziare a dare forma alla vostra crostata. Dunque, mettete la pasta frolla ben stesa in una teglia infarinata, versateci sopra la marmellata e stendetela per bene.

A questo punto sarete pronti per creare le striscette di pasta frolla per decorare in superficie la crostata. Infornate poi a 170 gradi per circa 30 minuti. Una volta cotta, sfornate, fate raffreddare un po’ e, prima di servire, fate una bella spolverata di zucchero a velo.

NEWS: VDL outlines EU plans to use sanctioned Russian billions to pay for re-construction of Ukraine

news:-vdl-outlines-eu-plans-to-use-sanctioned-russian-billions-to-pay-for-re-construction-of-ukraine

By AML Intelligence Correspondents

THE EUROPEAN Commission today set out proposals to use billions in sanctioned Russian assets to fund reconstruction in Ukraine.

Commission president Ursula von der Leyen said the frozen assets could be actively managed to generate a “stable and fair net return” to rebuild Ukraine.

Significantly, these assets would not be permanently confiscated but returned to Russia in the event of a peace agreement signed.

“Russia must pay for its horrific crimes, including its crime of aggression against a sovereign state,” Ms von der Leyen said today (Wednesday).

“Russia and its oligarchs have to compensate Ukraine for the damage and cover the costs for rebuilding the country. And we have the means to make Russia pay.”

Under her proposal, the Russian state would be entitled to have the assets returned if there was a peace deal, potentially along with some minimal accrued interest. In the meantime, the liquid assets of the Russian state would be invested to generate returns to pay for reconstruction.

Western powers have frozen hundreds of billions of dollars of foreign exchange reserves parked in accounts by the Russian central bank early in the conflict. Russia said subsequently that the central bank sanctions had frozen about $300bn out of its gold and forex reserves.

The proposal was previously floated by Commission foreign policy chief Josep Borrel.

Experts however said confiscating sovereign assets is fraught with difficulty.

Earlier this year US Treasury secretary Janet Yellen said confiscating Russian state assets should not be done lightly and only in co-ordination with the EU and other allies.

Meanwhile, officials in Brussels are attempting to get comprehensive data on sanctioned Russian assets from individual Member States.

The commission discussion paper admits the total amount of frozen Russian public assets was “currently unknown”.

The matter was also raised at a summit of Nato foreign ministers in Bucharest Tuesday.

The German and French governments meanwhile want the European Public Prosecutors Office (EPPO) to be given the power to prosecute for sanctions violations.

At the same time Commission officials are progressing plans to make sanctions violation a crime across the EU which would allow the confiscation of private assets.

The European Commission believes almost €18.9bn of private assets, belonging to oligarchs and other entities, was currently frozen in the EU.

The Average Lot Size in Every U.S. State in 2022

the-average-lot-size-in-every-us.-state-in-2022

Comparing average lot sizes in every U.S. state

The Average Lot Size in Every U.S. State in 2022

The “American Dream” is often associated with imagery of spacious estates adorned with white picket fences, wrap-around porches, and sprawling green lawns that seem to go on forever.

But in reality, modern American life has become much more compact. Over the last few decades, the average lot size in the U.S. has decreased significantly—from 18,760 square feet in 1978 to 13,896 in 2020.

While average lot sizes are getting smaller overall, there are still large discrepancies in lot sizes from state to state. This graphic by Angi uses data from the 2022 U.S. Lot Size Index to show the average lot size in every U.S. State, using data from 312,456 Zillow listings as of May 2022.

Largest and Smallest Average Lot Sizes by State

When it comes to the states with the largest plots of land, New England dominates the ranking, with Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine at the top of the list.

Rank State Median lot size (sq.ft.)
1 Vermont 78,408
2 New Hampshire 49,223
3 Maine 45,738
4 Montana 43,560
5 Alaska 42,423
6 Mississippi 31,799
7 Connecticut 30,928
8 Arkansas 24,829
9 Tennessee 24,394
10 Georgia 22,215

New England was one of the first regions settled by the Europeans in Colonial America. This long history, along with a large rural population, could explain why the area has strict zoning policies that limit density and require large minimum lot sizes for new builds.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Nevada ranks as the state with the smallest average lot size:

Rank State Median lot size (sq.ft.)
1 Nevada 7,405
2 California 8,327
3 Arizona 8,726
4 Illinois 9,025
5 Texas 9,540
6 Colorado 10,019
7 Florida 10,019
8 North Dakota 10,019
9 New Jersey 10,019
10 Ohio 10,019

One possible explanation is that Nevada’s population boom—and subsequent development—is relatively recent. Newer homes listed in the dataset tend to have smaller lot sizes, and in Nevada, 34.6% of homes included in the research were built in 2000 or later.

Comparing Lot Size to Land Price

Generally speaking, the states with the biggest lots also tend to have the cheapest land when broken down per square foot. For instance, in Vermont, properties sold for an average of about $5.95 per square foot.

comparing average lot sizes in the U.S. to price

View the full-size infographic

On the flip side, in Nevada, land sold for an average of $82.80 per square foot—that’s the third most expensive of any state.

Of course, other factors are at play here when it comes to the cost of land. Like anything else that’s for sale, the price of a lot is governed largely by the laws of supply and demand.

For example, housing supply is scarce in Hawaii, where only 4.9% of the land is zoned for residential development, and the average home size is much smaller than in other parts of the country. Not surprisingly, the average plot of land in Hawaii costs $110.86 per square foot, the most expensive on the list.

The Future of Housing in America

Average lot sizes remain relatively large in some states for now, but as the U.S. population continues to become more urbanized, living conditions in America could get even tighter.

Will America hold onto its spacious way of living, or could life in the U.S. start to resemble more densely populated regions in the future?
