This peperoncino is the perfect ingredient and complement to many traditional dishes of Campania and Calabria, in southern Italy.

Pomodori Pelati – Hand Peeled Tomatoes – 18.70 oz
Masseria Mirogallo’s Pomodori Pelati—tomatoes peeled by hand—are a typical Lucan specialty. Pantry powerhouses, they are versatile in their uses, exalting anything from a simple pasta sauce to a hearty ragù. The tomatoes retain a hearty texture in cooking, withstanding a slow braise, and also keep their wonderful sweetness and bright acidity.
Carefully cultivating seeds from the previous harvest, the Belfiore family—owners of Masseria Mirogallo—replant their own heirloom tomato seeds year after year.
When ripe, the tomatoes are harvested by hand, carefully cleaned, quickly blanched, and then peeled by hand in a fascinating show of skill. The tomatoes are jarred, sealed and briefly pasteurized for the minimum amount of time required. The result? Pure tomatoes preserved in their own juices, with no added salt or water.
Sicilian Salted Capers from Salina (caliber 6-7 mm) – 3.17 oz
Precious capers from Salina, bursting with Aeolian Island sun and sea breeze aromas.

After 10 days, the capers are cleaned and packed again under new sea salt and remain in the vats for an additional 20 to 30 days before they are ready to be used.
Surprise everyone with the intense flavor and texture of these little capers, especially if you are accustomed to pickled capers. Be sure to rinse under running water and carefully salt your food when using these capers. Use in sauces, stuffings, pasta and rice salads, or wherever olives are called for a new twist in flavor.
