We work the courgettes by hand, with care: we wash them and, once dry, we cut them into thin slices that we put to dry in the sun, respecting the right times. We use this ancient technique, which is less industrial and has zero environmental impact, because it is particularly suitable for enhancing the flavour of the courgettes and concentrating every nuance in the slices.
