Hand Peeled Tomatoes

Pomodori Pelati - NEW

Hand Peeled Tomatoes

Pomodori Pelati—tomatoes peeled by hand, from Masseria Mirogallo—are a typical Lucan specialty. Pantry powerhouses, they are versatile in their uses, exalting anything from a simple pasta sauce to a hearty ragù. The tomatoes retain a hearty texture in cooking, enough to withstand a slow braise, and also a wonderful sweetness and bright acidity.

Carefully cultivating seeds from the previous harvest, the Belfiore family—owners of Masseria Mirogallo—replant their own heirloom tomato seeds year after year.

When ripe, the tomatoes are harvested by hand, carefully cleaned, quickly blanched, then peeled by hand in a fascinating show of skill. The tomatoes are jarred, sealed and briefly pasteurized for the minimum amount of time required. The result? Pure tomatoes preserved in their own juices, with no added salt or water. 

Rolando raves: “Watching the process is amazing: the careful and tender hand labor of peeling the tomatoes is as if they are making the softest gnocchi."
