“Puntarelle” raw chicory shoots
“Puntarelle” are the heart of CICORIA CATALOGNA, a lettuce typical of our area. Sown in October, the vegetable is picked between January and February. Our women remove the leaves of the plant and manually cut away the “scattuni”, i.e., the shoots, an put them delicately in pickle to ripen for a few days, before being preserved under oil without the addition of aromas or spices.
This preparation method ensures the vegetable remains fresh and crunchy. This product is a vegetable with a very special flavour, ideal for giving freshness and character to meat, cheese and fish tartare dishes. This product is not widely known in Italy and is just waiting to be discovered!
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.
