Anchovies with capers
A totally natural and traditional process, based on age-old techniques used for more than 100 years. The fresh anchovies are beheaded and gutted and then placed in layers separated by salt in a barrel. They are left to mature for at least 6 months, until they reach their perfect maturation point. This time in the cellar is key to guarantee the authentic and characteristic flavor of our anchovies.
Once opened, in order to maintain all its full flavor for up to five days, it is important to keep the anchovies in the refrigerator, preferably covered and submerged in olive oil, adding more if necessary.
Anchovies hold a special place of honor in the kitchen, not only because of their delicious flavor and versatility, but also because they have a number of unique properties:
- High biological value protein source.
- High content of OMEGA 3 fatty acids, which our body does not generate by itself.
- Rich in vitamins A, D, E and K, which help strengthen the immune system.
