Peperoncino Piccante Macinato
If there is one thing that makes Calabrian food Calabrian, it is spicy red peppers, and these are hot! While many varieties of hot pepper are grown in the region, most are referred to as Calabrian peperoncino, and used in regional dishes. Like all capsicum plants, Calabrian peppers require hot weather to flourish and develop the oils that give them their spiciness.
In Calabria these chopped chillies in oil are added to just about everything…Pasta dishes and sauces, lentils, beans, fish, risottos, even a salad dressing! Sauté onions in the chilli oil instead of regular olive oil, make a spicy pesto…drizzle onto pizzas…
Ingredients: Chilli peppers, olive oil, natural flavours.
