‘O Core Rosso
Peeled Cuore di Bue Tomatoes
This recipe owes its origins to an old family tradition, whereby rural households used to produce Cuore di Bue preserves with the tomatoes growing in the vegetable gardens across the island of Isca – the little Italian island acquired by Eduardo De Filippo in the immediate post-war period and source of great inspiration for several of his masterpieces.
When the Scovaventi Farm was established in the Maremma countryside, it appeared natural to plant the same autochthonous tomato varieties, recalling the uniqueness of Isca while celebrating the scents of the Sorrentine Peninsula. With the intent of preserving these unique aromas, we have decided to produce a variety of peeled tomatoes bred from a cultivar in danger of extinction, and not generally used for preserves.
Our initiative begins with the Cuore di Bue, a sweet tomato, characterised by a thin peel, few seeds and low acidity.
