Our preserved vegetables

Fermented by pickling with salt, oil, or brine or marinated in vinegar, preserved vegetables allow us to experience all year round the juicy flavors of garden-grown vegetables typical of summertime.

Nouvelle Terre strives to maximize the palatability and authenticity of the vegetables preserved while simultaneously reducing their environmental and financial impact. In fact, the ingredients selected for our preserves are fresh, seasonal, and organic.

ITALY CLOSED IN A NICE LITTLE GLASS


Among these figure sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes, and capers. The tomato and its varieties represent the red gold of Apulia, first in Europe for the quality and quantity thereof. When tomatoes are at their ripest, they are dried hygienically and processed according to ancient traditional methods that involve the addition of white wine vinegar. Then, the dried tomatoes are dressed with extra-virgin olive oil and aromatized with rigorously local spices.


CAPERS, ARTICHOKES AND RED ITALIAN GOLD


Characterized by a distinctive and penetrating flavor and aphrodisiac properties, caper flowers bud out from woody shrubs called Capparis spinosa and growing in calcareous, dry soils across the Mediterranean area. Italy boasts a long history of caper cultivation, particularly widespread in Sicily where capers have been included in the official list of traditional regional agro-food products (PAT). Suffice it to mention the salt-packed capers from the volcanic island of Pantelleria. Capers not only form part of many different dishes but also come with the following benefits: they leave cholesterol levels unaffected; contain large amounts of phytonutrients, vitamins, and antioxidant flavonoid compounds like rutin and quercetin; and can serve as a natural remedy for allergies.
