An authentic Calabrian recipe passed on from 4 generations! This is not the mushy flavorless eggplants that you might find at the supermarket. A bite of this and you will mind-travel in the spicy Calabria region in South Italy.
These pickles are perfect to go with bread and fresh cheeses, or as a side for your meat or fish, and of course to give a spicy kick to your antipasto board.
The tradition to preserve vegetables goes back to the ancient Romans as it was essential to store the seasonal harvest all year long, or for long travels.
The ingredients are fresh and simple, but the preparation has been painstakingly done for your pleasure.
Delizie is an Australian family-own business. They made by hand using traditional recipes and methods dating back four generations. It all started back in Santa Caterina Ionio, Calabria, Italy, and they are still passionately carrying out this family tradition here in Australia.
They proudly use fresh Australian vegetables and then after processing them, preserve them in a very special marinade of Australian cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, Australian canola oil, fresh herbs and spices. There is NO preservatives, NO additives and NO colourings to any of their products.
