Sicilian foods, the good of quality

Sicily boasts a very rich and complete cuisine based on a wide range of foods that cover almost the entire spectrum of foods, from seafood to mountain cuisine. Much of the island’s cuisine is based on the use of fresh vegetables such as eggplant, peppers, asparagus, artichokes and tomatoes.

The consumption of fish is also very widespread, including fish such as tuna, swordfish or blue fish which include anchovies, sardines and anchovies. These delicious Sicilian foods give their best, as well as eaten fresh, preserved in oil according to traditional recipes.

The preparation of preserves

The best way to preserve the flavor and aroma of Sicilian foods for a long time is to process them as soon as they are picked or fished, then placing them in extra virgin olive oil in carefully sterilized glass jars. The purpose of this conservation technique is to:

  • isolate food from contact with air. This inhibits the proliferation of aerobic bacteria, or microorganisms that develop with the supply of oxygen.
  • In fact, foods in oil are often previously subjected to a transformation process by cooking
  • It is extremely important that food is completely immersed in oil, to prevent some parts from coming into contact with the air

The advantage of canned food

The preservation of Sicilian foods with oil is typical of vegetables such as artichokes, mushrooms, asparagus, but it is also practiced for some fish such as tuna. It is also extremely used to prepare sauces and condiments so that they can be used when needed, especially in the absence of the necessary time.

The great advantage of preserves in oil is the possibility of having the products available throughout the year, without having to give up their pleasure once they are out of the reference season.

The choice to produce quality preserves and products in oil is a way of bringing to your tables only the best of typical Sicilian gastronomic products, characterized by a careful selection of raw materials and constant control of the entire supply chain. Only fresh quality products, processed on the spot according to artisan tradition.
