The Violetto Brindisino is a very special native variety of artichoke. The name comes from the special purple colour of the artichoke as it ripens. We grow these artichokes from October and harvest them from March to early June. The artichokes are harvested and delicately prepared by hand, in a period of just 24 hours. This variety of artichoke has a high inulin content, a very small amount of insoluble fibre and a high potassium content. These characteristics make it both soft and particularly full of flavour. And not only is it tasty, it is also exceedingly healthy: it stimulates bile secretion, lowers cholesterol, and also regulates bowel and bladder functions. The pâté is prepared simply, with artichokes and extra virgin olive oil. There’s no need to add anything else.
Artichoke pâté is a very mild product that is perfect on pasta – an excellent filling for lasagne, for example – and it is also marvellous on toasted bread, especially the Pane di Altamura variety, a great filling for ravioli, savoury tarts, olive bread and bread rolls.
All our products are farmed with the integrated production technique on open field. Our hand picking allows us to make a first selection on site; and immediately after, the vegetables are transported to the facility to be processed. The processing is carried out strictly according to the tradition of Salento, then the vegetables are dried in the sun and salted by hand. Finally, the packaging is carried out by hand, and following step by step our typical recipes without any preservatives.
