The fantastic taste and rarity of Fagiolina make it a unique product
|Typical of Lake Trasimeno|
|Already cooked and ready to eat|
Ancient legume cultivated as early as Etruscan times, passed through the Romans and come down to us today. In the early 1950s, due to the exodus to the cities, its low productivity and its long cultivation and harvesting times, the Trasimeno Bean was abandoned and almost forgotten, until in 2002, a small circle of heroic producers formed the Consortium for the Protection of this little gem.
Grown only in the areas surrounding Lake Trasimeno, it was also called “lake rice” because of its very small size.
The characteristic that makes the Bean unique is undoubtedly the harvesting exclusively by hand. Since the month of June, the flower, fresh pod and ripe pod are present on the plant at the same time; this peculiarity strongly discourages large-scale production, since if one wants to obtain a product of excellent quality and at the right degree of ripeness, mechanized harvesting is not possible.
In cooking it can be used to prepare tasty appetizers and excellent side dishes.
Trasimeno Bean “alla Contadina” is prepared in vasocottura, a technique that allows all the flavors to remain inside the jar, ready to be released when it is opened.
Open, heat and add a drizzle of excellent Italian EVO oil raw: quick, tasty and in full Italian style!
INGREDIENTS: Trasimeno Bean, Onion, EVO oil, Vegetable broth, Salt, Pepper.
Perhaps not everyone knows that Trasimeno Bean could easily be classified as a Super Food: its high amounts of protein (higher than those of the best-known beans and on a par with meat), its complex carbohydrates, “good” fats necessary for our body, as well as the numerous vitamins, fibers (up to 200% more than simple beans) and micronutrients contained within it, make Bean a food that can represent a complete meal by itself.
Trasimeno Bean, if eaten regularly, contributes to maintaining a healthy weight, prevents diabetes, lowers cholesterol and is very useful during pregnancy or breastfeeding, as well as for children themselves in their developmental years to prevent malformations.
In addition, Trasimeno Bean and legumes in general, are very digestible and will make you feel good: in the physical because of their properties and in the soul because of the emotions they can transmit to you!
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use a special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
