Sun-dried peppers, salted and dried in the Italian sunshine, for an intense flavour. Our sun-dried red peppers are dried the old-fashioned way, on nets hanging out in the sun-drenched farming region of Puglia, Southern Italy. They can be used for antipasti, canapes, salads, pasta and paninis.

The sun-drying process has been in existence since at least 700BC, when Aztec farmers found a way to preserve crops that were abundant in the summer. Drying removes 80-90% of the water, without losing the antioxidant properties prevalent in red fruits and vegetables like our dried red peppers, namely lycopene. Some studies show the lycopene concentration actually rises.
