Peperoni Cruschi

Basilicata boasts among its products with the I.G.P. (Protected Geographical Indication) label, the Peperoni di Senise (Senise Peppers). Once harvested, the peppers are individually threaded by hand, one after another, through the stem, and hung in "serte" (strings), like necklaces, for drying. In our selection, you can find these peppers not only in their natural form but also increasingly appreciated as Peperoni Cruschi. The Peperoni Cruschi are briefly fried in extra virgin olive oil, allowed to cool for a few minutes, and then salted, ready to be enjoyed. They are called "cruschi" because they are crispy when properly made. To be labeled as I.G.P., the Peperoni di Senise must be produced in strict compliance with the production regulations.
