Anchovies; 'Colatura di Alici'
A way of salt-curing anchovies, closely related to the garum of ancient Rome.
During curing, the fish are aged in the sun, then strained and bottled. A delicious, but expensive product, for special occasions, such as dressing pasta on Christmas Eve. For suppliers see our Mail Order Section.
