More Information
Description Cherry tomatoes cultivated in open field in Apulia, dried and processed with sugar and salt for a pleasant sweet and sour note
Appearance Small tomates cut in half, very pulpy and bright in colour
Taste Sweet and rich in pulp with an intense aroma of tomato
Curiosity The word 'confit' derives from the French, and is an ancient preservation technique that takes place by drying at low temperature for a long time in the presence of sugar. This slow drying allows to preserve the flavour of the cherry tomatoes almost unchanged, which remain so fresh and rich in flavour
Our selection The most interesting aspect of I Contadini is the deep link with the land and the traditions. The vegetables grown with integrated techniques, in the filelds of the farm in the province of Lecce in Apulia region. After being picked by hand, the vegetables are immediately transported to the factory near the fields to be processed and packaged, always manually and following the traditional recipes of Salento
Suggestions Excellent served with a beef tagliata, or added as a reinterpretation of the classic orecchiette pasta with turnip greens, or served with sea bass. Lovely on a pizza with buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil or with a little of basil pesto: the confit tomato should always be added after baking!

I Contadini - Ugento (LE) - Apulia

Why we chose them
"I Contadini " farm, run today by the third generation, has been founded in one of the most suitable areas for the cultivation of vegetables, in Apulia, more exactly in Salento, the so-called "land of sun, sea and wind". The fantastic climate of this land, warmed by sun all over the year, together with fertile ground structure and positive sea influence, is perfect to obtain excellent tomatoes and all kind of vegetables. An "integrated production" technique is applied to cultivate more than 20 hectares of open fields vegetables: long tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, eggplants, courgettes, sweet and hot peppers, artichokes. Vegetables are naturally dried up by the sun of Salento, so that all the water in excess is taken away and the product is preserved in its organoleptic and nutritive qualities. Drying vegetables in the sun is a very ancient art, today almost totally abandoned; even though difficult and delicate, it allows to obtain an absolute unique organoleptic result: softness of pulp, preservation of vitamins, proteins and mineral salts, and a special harmonic flavour which is by far more recognizable. Short production chain and short label: Edoardo Trentin, with his brothers, takes care of the all process, from cultivation to packaging in olive oil, without preservatives
