Maida’s sun dried tomatoes are a little bit of summer in a jar; capturing the sun that warms the Cilento region of Campania so you can enjoy it all year long. These little tomatoes are packed with a complex flavor palate: the natural sweetness and acidity of the tomatoes; saltiness from the drying process; silky umami that comes from jarring them in rich southern Italian olive oil. Perfect as an aperitivo snack, they add flavor to soups and stews, or chopped into green salads or insalata di riso, but really shine in pasta dishes and can be added to just about any sauce. They pair well with other southern Italian ingredients like capers, tuna, and soft cheeses.

Farmer Francesco Vastola is the owner of Maida Farm in Paestum, near the Cilento National Park in Campania. He grows the highest quality fruits and vegetables, harvests them at their peak of freshness, and turns them into sott’olio using extra virgin olive oil that he produces himself.

To make his sundried tomatoes, Francesco harvests tomatoes that have been perfectly ripened in the sun, sprinkles them with salt and spreads them out in the fields to dry. No artificial preservatives here - white wine vinegar, oregano, capers, and chili peppers add the extra punch of flavor.
