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.
Peppers 35%, extra virgin olive oil, tuna 25% (fish), anchovies 4% (fish), capers, parsley, white wine vinegar, salt.

Piedmonte is the second largest region of Italy located to the north west of the country. It's largest city and the original capital to Italy is Turin, the bustling business and culture hub of northern Italy. Turin is covered in a mixture of 16th and 18th century renaissance, baroque and neo classical architecture. Fans of Juventus FC, one of Italy’s best football teams, will swarm the nearby architecture. Moving away from the cities, Piedmonte is known for its connection to the Alps, almost half of the region is covered by mountains making it one of Italy’s top skiing destinations. The geography of the region generates great agricultural farm land for vegetation to flourish. It is best known for its growing of grapes and production of wine including the famous Barolo. Other than wine, the region is known to produce a vast amount of Italian risotto rice on the flatter plains because of the drain off from the river Po.
