Altereco's grilled aubergines preserved in oil are made from 'mafia free' aubergines grown on the Terra Aut confiscated land. This product's raw materials are harvested by hand and processed according to tradition. After being sliced and cooked in water and vinegar, they are placed in jars with garlic, salt and olive oil, preserving the flavours of each ingredient.
Sweet, tasty and slightly spicy, they are perfect as an aperitif or to be served with main courses. Enjoy them with a good glass of wine!
Since 2008, the Altereco Social Cooperative has been working on the confiscated land of Terra Aut they not only grow vegetables, table grapes, pomegranates, cherries, lemons and olives for oil but also dreams and prospects for a dignified life.
The cooperative welcomes about 20 people a year from the penal area, from drug addiction and migrants from situations of great fragility with reintegration paths into the world of work, based on respect for people, whatever their origin.
Against all forms of oppression and malfeasance there are jams, pates, pickles, olive oil, tomato sauce. Terra Aut is not just a farm, it is a place of social redemption destination for educational projects and school visits, because letting people know that an alternative to the mafia exists is a duty.
