Materiaprima Cornichons Cetriolini Verde 1.7kg


Gherkins, Cornichons or Cetriolini Verde are small pickled cucumbers. They are picked young, salted and brined usually in a vinegar salt solution and left to ferment.  

These baby Cetriolini Verde are very crunchy, fruity with a nice acidic balance. They are delicious with Salume and pates and as accompaniment to Raclette. Try them chopped in a Remoulade sauce or salads. 

The Materiaprima Cetriolini Verde are specially preserved for Lario in Northern Italy.
