This rare specialty food is indigenous to Basilicata (Lucania), made with hand-harvested peppers of the Senise IGP variety. A labour-intensive harvesting process over rugged terrain takes place in the hot summer months, when peppers ripen and develop their bright red colour. The peppers are then hand-strung on vertical wreaths and left to dry in the hot sun for about one month.

When the peppers are thoroughly dried and slightly shriveled, they are flash-fried for seven seconds (no more!) in the local extra virgin olive oil and packaged with a light dusting of sea salt, producing a delicious crunchy, uniquely flavoured snack.

Serving Suggestions: These moreish crunchy peppers are perfect for an aperitivo snack with a glass of Prosecco, or can be crushed and used as a garnish in pasta dishes, sprinkled over steak or even scrambled eggs.
