Basilicata, just like the regions of Calabria and Puglia, is identified by the omnipresence of peppers in its cooking. The Belfiore family of Masseria Mirogallo hand-picks these 2 to 3 inch-long peppers and carefully packs 50 to 60 peppers into a jar along with wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil produced entirely at their farm. The nameDiavolicchi derives from the worddiavolo(meaning “devil”) because these peppers are said to be hotter than hell. One bite will ignite your taste buds, fire tingling your lips and palate before culminating in a pleasant sweet finish.
