The Olive Tree Hill also brings you three exclusive recipes for three particularly delicious sauces "invented" by Adelmo, inspired by his gluttony.
Spicyness is Adelmo's first "creature." It was born from the skillful blend of ingredients from the Olive Hill and ...the gluttony of the inventor. Spicy is considered a wild card in the kitchen, suitable for garnishing canapés for delicious appetizers it is great for seasoning any first course but also as an accompaniment to meat, fish and vegetables. This slightly spicy sauce is made by chopping tomatoes in oil with capers, olive pate, anchovies and a little chili pepper. On the label Adelmo wanted to emphasize his specialty with the words, "The spiciness on meats and pasta is a real treat." INGREDIENTS: sun-dried tomatoes (already boiled in wine and vinegar), anchovies, olive pate, capers, extra virgin olive oil and natural flavorings.

The fruits of the earth are at their best when they are picked at the right time.
In the spring, the olive trees begin to bloom, and if the weather conditions are good, olives are born in the summer and grow until harvest time in the fall. The staggered ripening of the olives makes it possible to extend the harvest until February, March so that the first cold pressing of Taggiasca extra virgin olive oil with a sweet fruity flavor can be obtained. At harvest time we spread out special nets that are sewn throughout the countryside. We use an air-powered "whisk" to do the knocking down, with plastic sticks that move the frond, causing the olives to fall without ruining the tree. From the tree, the olives are knocked down, brought to the warehouse, and passed through the sorting machine, which cleans them of leaves and sizes them according to size. On the same day as harvesting, we crush them in order to obtain the first cold pressing of Taggiasca extra virgin olive oil. When the olives reach the right ripeness, we again pick them by hand to put them in drums with brine in salt water and herbs. At the end of the harvest, nets are removed and pruning begins so as to prepare the trees for the following year. In this area where the climate is mild but with little rainfall, our farm has equipped itself with a drip irrigation system for each olive tree so as to help the plant do its production cycletive yearly.
Traditional Ligurian zucchini with a distinctive shape called "trombette" can be found in mid-season and during summer.
In the terraced bundles near the greenhouse, overlooking the Gulf of Diano Marina directly, we plant Riviera artichokes of the thorny variety. In August, the artichokes are planted in the "pit" and watered regularly. Then a bed of soil is created near the plant to protect it in the winter, and by Christmas until spring we harvest the plant's fruit. With the daily fresh cut, we guarantee the tenderness of both the artichoke heart and stem, true delicacies for artichoke lovers, which can also be eaten raw with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and slivers of parmesan and pecorino cheese.
In the open field in May, we plant hot peppers of the round variety. They ripen in summer and we harvest them by hand to empty them of seeds and stuff them with anchovies, Taggiasca olives and capers. With the spicy seed, combined with our Taggiasca extra virgin olive oil, we invented Bruxia Beck , a spicy cream that will please the most caliente palates.
Twice a year, in December and July, we prepare the greenhouse soil for planting tomatoes of the oxheart and Marmanda varieties, which are typical of Liguria. In the furrows we plant the cubed seedlings, which we wet first by hand with rubber, then by drip and sprinkler. When the plant is 30 cm tall, we tie it to a string supported by steel cables put on purpose to support the load of 10000 plants that can produce 500 quintals of tomatoes at full maturity. Regularly, during growth, the plant is cleaned of side shoots called "suckers" and lightened of excess flowers so as to obtain a good selection of tomato caliber. Tomato ripening does not occur all at once but "pinecone" or flowering blocks. When the tomato has reached the right ripeness, it is excellent for making the typical Ligurian "cundiun," seasoned with our Taggiasca extra-virgin olive oil, which enhances the flavor even more.
