On 11 November, the day dedicated to San Martino di Tours, it is Sicilian custom to eat San Martino biscuits, very dry and hard biscuits flavored with fennel or anise seeds. This is a very ancient custom, linked to the rites of the wine farmers, who on the occasion of the so-called Summer of San Martino saw the ripening of the new wine, an important source of their economy. They then arrived with the freshly baked San Martino biscuits and everyone took one and soaked it in the new wine, in the muscat or in some other sweet fortified sweet wine kept at home for the occasions
