Masseria Mirogallo Hand-Peeled Tomatoes
Produced by the Belfiore family in the province of Matera (one of Italy’s oldest towns), these hand-peeled tomatoes are stunningly packaged and taste terrific—sweet, fruity, bright and bold.
Masseria Mirogallo Sun-Dried Tomatoes
We prefer Masseria Mirogallo’s sun-dried tomatoes over other brands for their pure, authentic Basilicata flavor. The high-quality, fruity extra-virgin olive oil as well as the earthy oregano, grown alongside the tomatoes, make for an especially balanced and refined product. Use these meaty, supple sun-dried tomatoes to add texture and a sweet accent to your dishes. Dice and add to tomato-based sauces for an exciting twist—try adding a few tablespoons to our Spaghetti Puttanesca. We also like to add them chopped to bulgur pilaf, or even mixed into kibbeh.
Masseria Mirogallo Spaccatelle Sliced Tomatoes
This style of jarred tomato is a specialty of the Basilicata region. Perfectly ripe heirloom tomatoes are cut in half, with their pulp removed and skins left on. Masseria Mirogallo pasteurizes them for as little time as possible and adds no other ingredients—not even water or salt—so the final product has as much flavor as a fresh tomato and can be used similarly. They are ready to add to sauces, soups and relishes, or add them chopped to crostini and bruschetta with crumbled goat cheese or sliced smoked mozzarella, a few torn basil leaves and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil. Make sure to save the liquid from the jar for an easy gazpacho or even a Bloody Mary.
