Ercolano Yellow Tomatoes in Brine
Casa Marrazzo’s whole yellow Ercolano cherry tomatoes in salt water are a striking addition to any pantry. Grown in the bay of Naples in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, these tomatoes are wonderfully sweet and fleshy. Like sunshine in a jar, they use these perky tomatoes to brighten up any plate. Use them to make golden pasta sauces flavoured simply with olives and anchovies, or make a refreshing gazpacho soup garnished with basil leaves and olive oil.
Casa Marazzo is a third-generation family business that preserves the flavors of a generous and unique territoir. Each jar of tomatoes contains the values and memories that are handed down from generation to generation. Sitting in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius, the volcanic soil is known to give extra sweetness to everything that grows in the region. The passion of the Marazzo family is punctuated by a reverential respect for the raw material: tomatoes grown around Mt. Vesuvius, and by the wise and fundamental memories of those who preceded them. The Marazzo's listen closely to the to the seasons, preserving their tomatoes in a natural way without alterations of the true and typical flavors, and take care of the environment as a heritage to be left to one's children.
