Delicious, slightly hot peppers, hand-filled with mouthfuls of tuna, anchovies and capers. These small, round, spicy peppers are a typical produce in Monferrato, Piemonte – an area with a big tradition of pepper cultivation. Our producer purchases the seeds themselves and gives them to the farmer to sow in February. The peppers are worked as soon as they come from the field: hollowed (by hand) and left to mature in a brine of water, salt and vinegar. They are then rinsed and filled one by one by hand before being put into jars.
