“Puntarelle” is the heart of CICORIA CATALOGNA, lettuce typical of our area. Sown in October, the vegetable is picked between January and February. Our women remove the leaves of the plant and manually cut away the “scattuni”, i.e., the shoots, and put them delicately in a pickle to ripen for a few days, before being preserved under oil without the addition of aromas or spices.
