All legumes have been collected in small villages in Irpinia ( Campania Region).
They are selected and collected only manually.
The weather of this part of Italy is mild and windy and it helps for the drying phase, as nature demands.
There is no need to soak lentils before cooking them.
Good to know:
- Vacuum-sealed packaging
- Wash with cold water before cooking them.
- Cook over low heat for at least 45' and, if needed, add hot water during cooking phase.
Storage info: once opened, store in a jar and put in a cool and dry place.
Match: lentils can be eaten alone, or together with short pieces of pasta or rice or, even better, mixed in a soup with other legumes and vegetables. Dice some guanciale and add it to the soup for a unique taste.
