Preserved Vegetables

Celebrate the flavors of summer year-round with a medley of seasonal vegetables. Enjoy these preserved vegetables as part of an antipasto platter, or add them to dressings, pastas or risottos. Garlic is seasoned with thyme and bay leaves, then hand packed in white wine vinegar and local extra-virgin olive oil. The varietal, Monviso garlic, is a centuries-old varietal originally from the Italian region of Piedmont-now cultivated in the US by a single California grower. 1 lb. 5 oz. Giardiniera takes from the Italian name for "garden" and combines tender-crisp carrots, celery and red bell peppers with cloves of garlic. Hand-harvested vegetables are seasoned with mild red chilies, then packed by hand in white wine vinegar. 1 lb. 5 oz. Sun-Dried Tomatoes are ripe Roma tomatoes from the heart of California's farm country. Carefully harvested by hand, the tomatoes are slowly dried in the sunshine, a preserving method that concentrates their natural sweetness and ruby-red color. Combined with fresh basil and hand packed in golden, cold-pressed olive oil. 1 lb. 5 oz. Mushrooms are a medley of varieties from Pennsylvania. Our savory assortment includes baby portobello, shiitake, white button, crimini and oyster mushrooms, all grown on a fourth-generation family farm. They are seasoned with fresh thyme and garlic, then hand packed in California extra-virgin olive oil. 1 lb. 5 oz. Product of USA.

Excellent Appetizer
August 22, 2013
A gentle vinegrette made this the tastiest preserved vegetables for a recent dinner party. It was Italian themed and was paired with an olive oil antipasto dish which made the two sublime. This is my second order, great to keep on hand.
Pros: Texture, Quality, Good for Entertaining, Time-saver, Flavor, Healthy, Great Gift

special way to have garlic
July 8, 2013
The garlic is mild. I used it with whole wheat couscous and diced sun-dried tomatoes. It was very Mediterranean and satisfying. Once I added toasted cashew nut bits, and that was good, too. The flavor is deep and mild.
The amount is generous. The jar is bigger than it appears in the picture.

Terribly disappointed!
February 22, 2012
These are so NOT worth $25+ a jar. I bought the whole garlic cloves in extra-virgin olive oil and the giardiniera from a WS in Manhattan.
On the website, the product descriptions are more detailed which might have given me more informed info. I thought I had purchased unaltered heirloom garlic in extra virgin olive oil that was ready to use in cooking, while it's actually pickled garlic with a strange taste, and the olive oil tastes like soybean oil. Really gross.
Giardiniera is one of my favorite pickled veggies and love trying different kinds. But these were AWFUL - the vinegar ratio is incredibly overpowering, so much so that I couldn't eat more than 2 vegetables. There's also a strange sweet taste in the background. It overpowers any flavors that the sage and other herbs would have offered. There is also no hint of spice that should be from pepperoncini or other pepper which is signature of a good giardiniera.
Cons: Disappointing, Texture, Ingredients, Flavor
