A small curiosity: What are "bruscandoli"? The bruscandoli or asparagine are the tops of wild hops easily available from March to May in uncultivated areas along rivers, in bushes and in the middle of hedges, from fertile and fresh flat areas and up to 1200 m altitude, even in alpine areas. These are hop plant shoots that are all effects unselvative, since the cultivation of this Cannabacea belonging to the order of the Urticals, to pick the shoots, is not commonly practiced while, especially in small areas of northern Italy mainly, is in use the cultivation of hops for brassic-li: the inflorescence is used to flavour and preserve the beers from oxidation. It is worth remembering that the cultivation of hops for this purpose was introduced in Italy in 1847 by Gaetano Pasqui da Forlì who promoted a brewery. Well rooted in the Italian tradition, the bruscandoli are also mentioned by Ugo Foscolo in his masterpiece: "Le ultime lettere di Jacopo Ortis". In it it mentions the soup of bruscandoli, enjoyed by Venetian families in spring.
