Cime di rapa, also known as broccoli rabe shoots, are possibly the most representative ingredient of the Apulian cuisine and the main ingredient of the most iconic regional dish, the Orecchiette con cime di rape.
The Cime di rapa, grown in the farm and harvested by hand, are prized for their deep flavour and delicate bitterness and after being blanched, are reduced to pesto and preserved in extra virgin olive oil for a very rich taste and for that reason, can be used in plenty of recipes. Our cime di rapa pesto are 100% natural, they do not contain any artificial preservatives and are perfect not only in the preparation of the famous and delicious orecchiette cime di rapa but as an alternative to the traditional basil pesto.

Alongside the Orecchiette pasta this is the perfect pesto to use in this classic recipe. Living in the UK it's going to be virtually impossible to get fresh Broccoli Rabe shoots so this is the next best thing with a lovely subtle, slightly bitter flavour.
