This speciality is made by selecting the best tomatoes, picked at the peak of ripeness. They are first washed and cut up into pieces, the seeds are removed, and then they are allowed to dry slowly in the sun on mats inside greenhouses. They are subsequently salted and flavoured with the typical herbs of the Liguria region and, lastly, finely chopped and preserved in extra virgin olive oil. The result is an exquisite-tasting uniformly creamy paste. It is a natural product and contains no preservatives. It can be served with hors d’oeuvres or used to enrich any dish.
