Little Italy Christmas Goodies

I got some great Christmas foodie goodies in Little Italy on a recent trip for the holidays.  I was so happy to find an outside stand selling struffoli.  And I can tell you, it was as delicious as it is pretty.  The balls weren’t light and airy but moderately firm.  The honey syrup was perfect as well.  The man told me they had just been made the day before.

I got some other goodies, such as Molinari salame, Nutella from Italy, Toschi amarena cherries in syrup and Luxardo maraschino cherries made with real maraschino liqueur.
