The sweet bean of Scicli (RG), in Sicilian dialect "Cosaruciaru" (ie, sweet thing) is a product linked to the territory of Eastern Sicily, south of Siracura, in the province of Ragusa, Scicli, where it grows and is grown exclusively than the rest of the planet. From very ancient origins, this type of bean, similar to borlotto, but smaller with intense purple veins, and sweet, with a delicate and fragrant taste, is grown in very small quantities, from only 3 selected local farms, two of which they often do not have sufficient availability for sale, reflecting its very restricted and very reserved market.
A product in high demand abroad, America, Australia, Japan, and in Italy above all by star chefs thanks to its versatility and unconventional taste, the sweet bean of Scicli is considered an elite product, rich in trace elements, potassium and iron, and it can be enjoyed with recipes with a traditional taste, for example with pasta, but also whimsical and worthy of the most refined menus. With Cosaruciaro bean can be created creams, salads, cold and hot dishes, with fish and meats, tasted alone, with good extra virgin olive oil, or blanched and heated in a pan with bacon, shaded by a few drops of wine, and used as a side dish with veal fillets, pork ribs or Florentine steaks.
