Benfatti Sicilian Cherry Tomato Sauce is one of the most delicious and healthy family produced ready made sauces available - this all natural sauce has no added sugar and it is gluten free, dairy free and preservative free.
Benfatti Sicilian Cherry Tomato Sauce has been made by the Santo family, a dedicated artisan producer from the small village of Sortino just inland from Syracuse in South East Sicily. The Santo family handle the entire production of this delicious sauce onsite at their farm.
Within only 24 hours from picking, the family cooks down their ripe cherry tomatoes adding their family grown fresh basil, a splash of their very own extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of Sicilian sea salt. This home style production takes a lot of time and requires a lot of love to perfect the sauce. The result is a natural garden fresh flavour that large producers can simply not replicate.
The cherry tomatoes farmed by the Santo family, used to produce this delicious sauce, are sought after by gourmets around the world for their very low acidity, beautiful sweet fruity flavour and their distinct natural and rich aroma. The low acidity of the cherry tomato means the family does not need to add any sugar in the production process which is a common technique used by larger producers to equal out the acidity of most other tomato varieties.
Some of our customers have described this cherry tomato sauce as tasting so garden fresh, sweet and fruity that once consumed it becomes dangerously addictive bringing on desires of wanting to visit the fertile land which creates this beautiful little cherry tomato. Most of them tell us emphatically ‘Now this is the way tomatoes are meant to taste!’
For an easy and extremely tasty traditional Italian recipe simply fry a clove of garlic or onion in a pan, cook your favourite pasta, drain and add the pasta to the pan, then stir through the cherry tomato sauce and serve with some grated parmesan cheese. Delicious simplicity like this is the trade mark of Sicilian cuisine.
If pizza or pasta is not your thing, try Benfatti Sicilian Cherry Tomato Sauce as a salsa dip for calamari, as a topping over your favourite grilled fish dish, stir it through your seafood marinara, dress on top of your bruschetta or arancini balls or even, believe it or not, use it to make a sensational Bloody Mary cocktail.
