Ustica lentils – Slow food, organic
Brown on the outside and orange on the inside, the Ustica lentil is a crop from the small Sicilian Island. Inside, it preserves all the flavours and smells that come from the island’s soil. The Ustica lentil is an excellent food product, both at the table and for cooking. Ready in 40 minutes without soaking, is a useful source of vegetable protein to combat cholesterol. It is grown in limited quantities due to the small amount of land available on the island, and the small-scale organic production is so special that it has been named a Slow Food Presidium.
Ustica lentils have been produced for five generations by the Pagliuzzo farm, which is attentive to the Sicilian farming tradition and to the production of the island’s territory. In addition to Ustica lentils, the farm also produces other legumes such as chickling peas, beans and broad beans. Pagliuzzo’s productions are organic and genuine, without the use of pesticides in order to respect the environment and consumers.
