Product Description

La Valletta is a family-run company in Umbria that works in a sustainable manner to produce exceptional grains and legumes. Alessandro and Rosalba Cappelletti are a brother and sister team dedicated to the preservation of plants native to the Colfiorito Plateau on the border of Umbria and Marche. This is a region of wide green plateaus and rolling planes.

Lentils, chickpeas, farro, white "Purgatorio" beans, cicerchia, pearled barley - orzo perlato andborlotti beans are all cornerstones of rural Umbrian cuisine. The Fagioli del Purgatorio are a particular variety of white bean: small, with a tender husk, and a gentle and delicate flavor, ideally eaten in a salad with just a drizzle of good olive oil. The Fagioli del Purgatorio must be soaked overnight in cold water, then brought to a boil and simmered gently in water with a few aromatic herbs added, possibly in a terracotta (earthenware) pan. Once drained, they can be dressed for use in a salad. Also an excellent ingredient for mixed pulse legumes.
