These delicious artichokes from Italy have been split and quartered, charcoal grilled and then preserved in olive oil. The artichokes have been hand picked, sorted and bottled with no artificial additives. You can really taste the quality of the produce.
Puglia is the driest region in Italy and as such its climate is typically Mediterranean, with hot and dry summers, and mild winters. The few rivers of the region are found on the Tavoliere delle Puglia. This enormous low-lying plain is one of the most agriculturally productive plains in the country. In winter, it occasionally floods, whilst droughts are common in summer. This climate provides the perfect conditions for cultivation of eggplants, artichokes and onions. It is little surprise that these are three of Puglia’s most prized delicacies. Each thrives in full sun, and well-drained, sandy soil.
Serving Suggestions: Serve as antipasto, or as ingredient in pasta sauce and risotto. Artichokes represent spring on the quattro stagioni (four seasons), and as such are used on this type of pizza. Try them in a salad or in your favourite panini.
About the Producer
In 1980, two Pugliese brothers began creating outstanding examples of the regional specialities of their southern homeland. Puma’s range of antipasti is a testament to the importance of preserving fresh seasonal produce. This traditional wisdom ensures that the consumer has consistent access to a full range of flavours throughout the year.
Only fresh products from local Pugliese farms are chosen for preservation. Puma staff monitor the growing fields regularly, and they maintain a trustworthy relationship with each and every farmer.
