A very old regional variety grown ONLY in the Tuscan hills of Chianti, Valdarno and Pratomagno, it is of small size, harvested by hand with exceptional flavour characteristics and balance of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Because it is skinless, it is easily digestible for children and the elderly and is of exceptional quality.
Soak for at least a day changing the water at least once, before boiling from cold for about an hour. Can be used in Minestrone and a whole host of dishes with great success. It is wonderful served hot on its own with salt and pepper and good Tuscan olive oil, but they are particularly well suited when served with fish. 350g pack.
