OLIVE DI VARIETA’ “TAGGIASCA”

Le olive prodotte al Colle degli Ulivi sono tutte della varietà “Taggiasca”, qualità d'eccellenza della nostra zona. Si possono facilmente riconoscere dal colore non omogeneo, hanno una maturazione a scalare dal verde al nero, sono piccole e vengono poste in salamoia e aromatizzate con timo, alloro e rosmarino, secondo la tipica ricetta ligure. Il loro sapore è ideale per aperitivi stuzziacanti, e per ogni uso in cucina.
INGREDIENTI: olive Taggiasche, acqua, sale, aromi naturali (alloro, timo e rosmarino)
CONSERVAZIONE: le nostre olive in salamoia si conservano per circa un anno dalla data del confezionamento; la salamoia in cui sono immerse è fatta con la percentuale di sale necessaria per mantenerle sane senza aggiunta di conservanti. Dopo l’apertura del vasetto, è possibile che appaia in superficie un fiore bianco: ciò è assolutamente naturale e non altera il prodotto.
Le confezioni disponibili sono:
• Vaso da 340 g
• Vaso da 630 g
• Cestello da 1 kg
• Cestello da 5 kg

OLIVES

the trees flower in spring and the Taggiasca olives mature in stages permitting us to prolong the harvest until February.  They are taken to the oil mill and are cold pressed. Some of the olives are put in brine. After the last harvest the nets are removed and the trees are pruned ready for the next year.

 

ZUCCHINE "Trombette"

ARTICHOKES

these thorned variety of artichokes are planted in August, cossetted against cold weather, regularly watered and are harvested in August.

 

CHILLY PEPPERS

these round spicy peppers are planted in May and are hand picked during the summer months.

 

 

TOMATOES
