I Contadini


These sweet red peppers are grown in open fields and hand-harvested in May, when they are at their peak ripeness. The peppers are then cut into strips, tanned, and manually placed in jars with fresh mint leaves, dried garlic, and extra virgin olive oil.

The resulting paprika has a distinct sweet and smoky flavor that is a delicious and authentic representation of Apulian cuisine. The careful selection and traditional processing of these peppers ensure that their unique taste is perfectly preserved.

Enjoy this paprika as an antipasti, or in a variety of dishes to add a bold and flavorful twist to your meals.
