Conserva Mara is a culinary excellence that represents the authentic flavor and tradition of Salento. This unique product is the result of an ancient recipe handed down from generation to generation that La Terra di Puglia has collected for you. The product is the result of a well-balanced combination of hot pepper and local tomatoes. The result is a truly extraordinary chilli and tomato concentrate, which is usually never lacking in the kitchens of Salento.

The preparation of Conserva Mara is long and laborious and requires time and patience. The process begins with the boiling of the chillies and tomatoes, which are then carefully transformed into a delicious puree of a beautiful deep red. But that's just the beginning.

In a second phase, the passata is dried in the sun so as to turn into a thick paté. Even today the people of Salento place it on sunny terraces, to favor rapid and natural drying. Finally, the Mara preserve is then mixed with extra virgin olive oil, little by little, in a process that requires at least seven days of patient waiting. Only when Conserva Mara reaches its point of perfection is it packaged in our special glass jars, ready to delight your palate. This authentic culinary treasure is a must in Salento cuisine. You can spread it on a fragrant slice of warm bread, add it to pasta to give it a touch of spiciness and flavour, or use it as a secret ingredient to flavor your favorite dishes.

Choose the Mara preserve to live a unique experience that contains all the warmth and passion of Salento. Its superior quality and irresistible taste will win you over from the first bite.
