A typical seasoning from the Calabrian cuisine. The hot 'peperoncini' find in this region the best climatic conditions which allow them to capture the special organoleptic qualities that make it unique. They are hand-picked in August-October, in the maturity phase, just after their change in colour from green to deep red. Then they are then chopped and preserved in organic extra virgin olive oil, without the addition of preservatives, according to traditional methods.
Libera Terra ("Free Land") was created with the aim of developing stunning but historically "difficult" territories. After a social and productive rehabilitation of assets freed from various mafia groups, the organization aims to obtain high quality products, which respect both the environment and the dignity of its workers. But Libera Terra also plays an active role by involving other producers, who share the same principles, and by promoting organic farming more generally. The mission of the Libera Terra project is to give dignity to territories with a strong mafia presence through the creation of autonomous and cooperative farms that are self-sufficient, stable, and that are able to create work places, thereby establishing a moral economic system based on legality, social justice and market.
