Do you know?

Basil has been used for so long that it is difficult to identify its origins; many believe it came from Africa, but it has a long history of legends and customs around the world. The ancient Egyptians used it as a medicine for scorpion stings and snake bites. Pliny the Elder, a Roman naturalist, recommended basil tea as a remedy to calm nerves, soothe headaches and avoid fainting.

The early Greeks and Ancient Romans thought the plant would grow lush, strong and fragrant, but only if the gardener screamed and cursed as he sowed it. Basil, also known as Witches Herb, comes from the Greek word “basilikon” and means king. It was in fact considered a royal herb, thanks to its smell suitable for the home of a ruler.

It was also used to place it around the house or on the floor, to purify the surrounding space, but also to attract money, health and luck. A jar of basil makes a great housewarming gift, perfect for new owners!

Just like the Marinara sauce, our Basil sauce adds to our dearest base some pepper, oregano and basil. The mix is different however. The basil is predominant in the sauce, a simple and delicate taste, one that talks about summer or spring, about lunch with the family, in the warm air and the sunny day. For the families in Campania, the basil sauce is the everyday go-to choice.

And that’s why we chose our basil for our sauces. We use only Neapolitan basil, the lettuce leaf basil, the one that during the summer lets our towns smell nice. To offer you our love and tradition for the sauce and the food.

If you walk around our cities at 13:00, the smell is the same one we bring to your house with this sauce.

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.
