The Isernia’s white onion is the masterpiece of Molise simplicity, an onion in oil that stands out thanks to its delicious and unique taste. We use an exclusive raw material, the white onion from Isernia, which is characterised by a sweet and intense, but not strong, flavour. We combine it with our EVO oil to obtain a special product, which amazes the first taste and satisfies subsequent ones.
Ideal as an appetiser and eye-catching in a sandwich, our white onion in oil is superb raw on a pizza or as a side dish for main courses, cheese and mozzarella.
The white onion from Isernia is the latest addition to Orominerva's range of vegetables in oil. It is a special delicacy because it evokes traditional flavours while looking to the future, promoting biodiversity and social integration.
Our onion in oil, is the result of a project that follows new taste trends through the enhancement of our territory and the support of collective well-being. For the raw material, an exclusive bulb that has been grown on our land for centuries, we have special suppliers, the disabled children of the L.A.I. Cooperative. For our friends, work is an educational tool and agriculture, in particular, is a strong incentive to improve their quality of life.
Their onions are exceptional: combined with our EVO they are the perfect synthesis of Orominerva goodness. The flavour is intense but not strong, sweet and delicate, the organoleptic profile is balanced.
Our White Onion from Isernia is delicious, a preservative-free preserve made only from good, natural ingredients.
The Isernia’s white onion is a bulb with a flattened shape, sweet taste and delicate aroma. It is grown in the Isernia area, at around 500 metres above sea level, where it is harvested by hand in June.
The white onion is linked to very ancient customs and traditions, particularly significant for the town of Isernia, values to be preserved and promoted through the organoleptic qualities of this exclusive bulb, a variety that, like other more famous ones, deserves to be considered one of the best in Italy.
