Methods of manufacturing
The following ingredients are used: soft wheat flour, bread yeast, extra virgin olive oil, rosemary, water and salt. In some cases, add white wine and orange rind. Boil a little rosemary branch and the orange rind in water for about five minutes. Percolate and pour out the brew into a container with flour. Add and mix salt, white wine, yeast.
