Masseria Mirogallo's Pomodori Pelati‚Äîtomatoes peeled by hand‚Äîare a typical Lucan specialty. Pantry powerhouses, they are versatile in their uses, exalting anything from a simple pasta sauce to a hearty rag√π. The tomatoes retain a hearty texture in cooking, withstanding a slow braise, and also keep their wonderful sweetness and bright acidity.
Carefully cultivating seeds from the previous harvest, the Belfiore family‚Äîowners of Masseria Mirogallo‚Äîreplant their own heirloom tomato seeds year after year.
When ripe, the tomatoes are harvested by hand, carefully cleaned, quickly blanched, and then peeled by hand in a fascinating show of skill. The tomatoes are jarred, sealed and briefly pasteurized for the minimum amount of time required. The result? Pure tomatoes preserved in their own juices, with no added salt or water.¬†
