Do You Know ?

The origin of the garlic is unsure. There is proof of its use all over the word: from Siberia to Calabria, from Sicily to Africa, from the Middle East to India. But we are sure that about 4000 years ago the garlic was used by Egyptians and Sumerians, we can read about it even in the Exodus n the Bible. The garlic was often used as a medication or a magic remedy, because of its good property.

An Egyptian medical papyrus (from 1550 BC) talks about how garlic was good for 22 different purposes, among others, it’s a source of energy, it's good for stopping the pain and the itch of the mosquito bites. Erodoto says the Egyptians’slave used to eat the garlic to have more straight.

And also they believed garlic necklaces protect children from intestinal parasites and increase the fecundity of their women. Ancient Greek had called it stinky rose and their athlete ate it before a competition, it was also used against magic potions, we can read it in the Odyssey. In Imperial Rome the garlic was used by the farmers, to prevent infections, and a lot by the soldiers, to improve their manliness, their passion, and fearlessness in the heat of battles. So the garlic becomes the sacred plant for the god Mars, a god who was also a progenitor of the Romans (he was the father of their first king). And even if in Renaissance Era it was not used in cooking, it remained an important pharmacological element.

During War World I the soldiers used it to disinfect the infected wounds and to help the respiratory system. The medicinal benefits of garlic are a lot, that’s why is used in Italian cuisine and the Mediterranean diet, despite the smell not always pleasant. The taste however is not only unique but quite tasty, because is intense and almost spicy.

The process

In Italy, we consider the preparation to be the final ingredient in any dish. This is when we add the finishing touch: Love. Our cooking method is the oldest in the world, and it’s still treasured by Italian grandmas and mothers throughout San Marzano. It’s called 50 Minutes Lento & Stirred, and it’s practiced every day in every batch of sauce we make.

Introducing 50 minutes lento & stirred Time is our secret ingredient. Each sauce is simmered slowly ("lento," as we say in Italy) over low heat and stir, stir, stirred without stopping. This method celebrates every ingredient and creates the perfect balance of flavors. Rich and warming, yet light and natural—this is what Italian sauce should taste like. We slow down and take our time on every sauce so you can enjoy the timeless flavor in just 3 minutes. But life is short, so don’t forget to stop and smell the basil now and again.
