Tomato Extract "Estratto di Pomodoro" - 6.35 oz
Estratto di Pomodoro is a concentrated tomato paste or as Sicilians refer to as "strattu". A great estratto requires an intense summer heat and extreme patience, because the pulp of the tomatoes must be stirred for hours by hand to evaporate all of the liquids. The island of Sicily offers up plenty of hot summer heat and Villa Reale adds extreme patience and tradition to the whole process. This thick paste has a deep, burgundy color and the flavor is sweet and intense yet open. A little bit goes a long way!
