Friselle are a kind of dry bread made in Puglia with durum wheat and barley . They are made in the shape of bagels, then they are baked, cut in half horizontally and baked in the oven again, so to become crisp. Most recipes call for the friselle to be first soaked in water and then seasoned with garlic, fresh tomato and excellent extra virgin olive oil. For the more daring you can add, artichokes, capers, anchovies or lampascioni (Apulia wild onions...)!
