Notes
The plants in Corsica

In Corsica we call the coltsfoot "Farfarella", "unghja sumirina" source Flora Corsica.

And also "passu sumerinu" heard once in Balagna. We thank Stefanina and Patricia arburi e fiori for this information.

One could also name it "Calma tossa di stampa sumerina" (relieves cough on the step of donkey)

Thanks to Christophe Limongi for the help and his translation in Corsican, about this proposal of ANA.

We also thank Danièle Brun for her contribution (see comments at the bottom of the page, jelly mimosa recipe).
