Colatura di Alici - Colature of Anchovies from Cetara Delfino Battista 250 ml
This colature or anchovy coulis is a specialty produced by the Delfino company located in Cetara on the Amalfi Coast in Campania.
This amber product is similar to ancient garum which was used by the Romans and Greeks.
They remove the head and viscera from freshly caught anchovies. The anchovies remain for 24 hours in containers filled with sea salt.
Then they are stored alternating layers of salt and anchovies in small oak or chestnut barrels. Manual and laborious work.
The barrels are covered by a wooden disc on which weight is placed.
The liquid that forms on the surface is kept in a glass container. This liquid is exposed to the sun to remove water and increase its concentration.
After about 5 months this liquid is poured over the surface of the anchovies to start a process of slow pouring hence the name "colatura" between the different layers of fish.
A small hole is pierced at the bottom of the barrel to recover the concentration of juice filtered through linen cloths.
It takes about 30 kilos of anchovies to produce 1 liter of colature.
It is a natural product without preservatives.
Rich in vitamin A, this little marvel will spice up your various preparations.
