Wild Mushrooms in olive oil
Place of Origin
Wild mushrooms in olive oil preserve is typical of Puglia, and a Traditional Agricultural Food Product (PAT) of the region.
The wild mushrooms in oil used for this preserve are picked up in the woods scattered all around Puglia.
For the preparation of this preserve wild mushrooms must be chosen from those fresh and picked up on the same day. They are washed, cleaned and cut into pieces. They are then boiled in vinegar and allowed to dry.
Once ready they can be placed inside airtight glass jars, with garlic and parsley, and covered with extra virgin olive oil.
They can be consumed after three months.
Wild mushrooms in oil can be used as a starter but also as a filling for sandwiches or as a side dish to meat dishes.
