Handcrafted tomato puree
Orominerva tomato puree is an artisan speciality made with just two ingredients: tomatoes and salt.
Gambero Rosso voted it the best artisanal tomato puree in Italy in 2017 and included it in the Top Italian Food 2023 guide.
Thick, tasty and full of traditional flavours, we produce it without peeling waste and with a slow pasteurisation in a bain-marie.
No preservatives added.
Fresh tomatoes and salt are combined to create our tomato puree, which is delicate, tasty and rustic, just like tradition. The tomatoes we use are of the highest quality, fresh, grown in our own and neighbouring areas by trusted growers, and then processed with due care in an artisan manner.
We pick the tomatoes at the right time and process them fresh by blanching them in water before processing; finally, the classic pasteurisation is carried out in a bain-marie at the right time, without rushing. Waiting time is essential for an exclusive production such as ours and it helps to make our puree very different from industrial ones.
We obtain a goodness like no other, which responds to the desire to rediscover the flavours of the past and make them one's own, enjoying a shared pleasure.
The value of our tomato puree is confirmed by Gambero Rosso which elected it the best artisan puree in Italy in 2017 and it was defined as:"Slightly grainy, compact and homogeneous in its flaming red colour, it has the courage to be what it is: a delicate and very classic puree, with a full, round and balanced flavour and aromas of great freshness".
A certainty for those who want the authentic taste of things, even in the kitchen. Our homemade tomato puree is an excellent base for a variety of traditional dishes, such as sauces.
Made from 100% Italian tomatoes, with simply the addition of salt and without preservatives, Orominerva tomato puree brings the goodness of yesteryear back to the table.
