Why was this product created ?
Offer tasty sundried tomatoes with a much softer texture than traditional recipes.
Favuzzi semi-dried tomatoes are tasty and flavorful. Ripened to perfection under the Abruzzo sun, in Italy, and preserved in a blend of extra-virgin olive oil and sunflower oil, their flavors are enhanced with a hint of basil, oregano, garlic and wine vinegar. Furthermore, they contain no preservatives.
Selected fresh tomatoes are marinated, then slowly cooked in a very low oven to preserve the tender texture that sets them apart from traditional dried tomatoes.
Favuzzi dried tomatoes are the only authentic Italian dried tomatoes: they are made from vine tomatoes picked on the land of our producer in the Abruzzo region.
Located in the high hills of Roccascalegna in Italy which enjoy a mild and temperate climate throughout the year, the recipes are made from raw materials having benefited from the best conditions to develop.
