Colatura di Alici di Cetara Acquapazza 50ml
The Colatura di Alici Cetara Acquapazza Gourmet Traditional Anchovy Extract is a amber color liquid that is obtained from the maturation of the salted anchovies, whose history is rooted in the deepest food traditions of Campania. It is a typical product of the town of Cetara, on the beautiful Amalfi Coast. The preparation follows an ancient and rigorous process: the anchovies are caught with the cianciola, an ancient boat specialized in blue fish fishing, only in the sea of the Amalfi Coast from 25 March, the day the celebration of the Annunciation is celebrated; until July 22, on which the Catholic Church celebrates Santa Maria Maddalena. The freshly-picked anchovies are cleaned by removing their heads and interiors, put them in salt for 24 hours and then transferred to chestnut or oak barrels, covered in salt. By the pressure of the weights that are put on the barrels emerges a liquid that becomes the Colatura di Alici. In Cetara, colatura di alici is mainly used as spaghetti dressing, a typical recipe for Christmas Eve. The Colatura di Alici di Acqua pazza Gourmet Traditional Anchovy Extract is undoubtedly the most traditional interpretation of this extraordinary product.
