WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL
Delfino Battista’s Colatura di alici is special for many reasons: the selection of high-quality raw materials, the careful craftsmanship according to the best tradition of Cetara, without chemical preservatives or additives, the authentic taste
The Anchovies Sauce from Cetara is a translucent amber liquid obtained from the skilful seasoning and pressing of anchovies left to ripen with salt in special wooden casks.
The extract od anchovies is a genuine food, easy to digest and rich in vitamin A.
Amber in colour and balanced to the taste albeit rather strong, the Colatura di alici offers a rich bouquet of intense aromas associated with the Mediterranean.
Salted anchovy extract, salt.
Gustorotondo selected Delfino Battista for the authentic flavours and for the attention the company dedicates to the ingredients and to the production processes.
Colatura di alici translates to Dripping of anchovies (the Italian verb colare means to drip).
It is a typical and traditional specialty of Cetara, a translucent amber liquid obtained from the skilful seasoning and pressing of anchovies left to ripen with salt in special wooden casks.
The tiny silvery anchovies are alternately layered with salt inside small wooden casks called terzigni. The name terzigno (terzigni is plural) comes from the fact that the size of the cask is one third (in Italian un terzo) of a barrel.
Completed the layers, anchovies and salt are covered with a wooden disc, and a weight is put on it.
Due to the pressing and to the ripening of anchovies, a liquid is produced.
The liquid that is first produced is thrown away; the liquid produced when the anchovies are more ripe, instead, is collected and then poured back in the terzigno still full of the anchovies:
passing slowly through the various layers of anchovies and salt it will collect their organoleptic characteristics.
The liquid is then recovered through a small hole at the bottom of the terzigno and filtered.
The very essence of anchovy is ready.
Colatura di Alici combined with a good olive oil can be used to season fresh or boiled (e.g. potatoes and broccoli) vegetables, cereal soups and fish dishes.
It also pairs greatly spaghetti in the classic recipe Spaghetti con colatura di alici.
Spaghetti with Anchovies Sauce is an extremely simple dish. It can be cooked by anyone and it doesn’t take much time.
The spaghetti al dente and the strong flavour of the Colatura will bring you pure pleasure: here is an important part of the true essence of the magnificent culinary tradition of the Amalfi Coast.
