Medley of grilled vegetables packed in oil: caramelized onions, mushrooms, artichokes and sweet red pepper, packed in oil. Delicious alone on a big plate with warm bread, but also a nice addition to steamed veggies or fresh salad. (Le Marche, Central Italy)

Tomato-artichoke sauce made with vine-ripened tomatoes, chunks of artichoke, basil, parsley, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. Ideal for bruschetta: spread on toasted bread or crackers. Or use for sauce on your favorite pasta, perhaps fusilli. (Campania, Southern Italy)

Colorful pitted olives in packed in extra virgin olive oil. Liven up any antipasto platter with these spectacular olives. Save the remaining olive oil! It is flavorful and aromatic. (Liguria, Northern Italy)

Jam of mixed forest berries: strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, sugar and lemon juice. Pair with a savory like soft cheese or liven up cold summer drinks (see recipes). (Tirolo-Alpine Region, Austria-Northern Italy)

Two classic Italian sodas: Limonata made with Sicilian lemons, and Aranciata Rossa, made with Sicilian red, or “blood” oranges. Flavors are strong and sweet, no preservatives. We like to thin the sodas by mixing with carbonated water. Add white wine and a dollop of this package’s mixed berry jam, and some cherry syrup from the July package. Any fruit combination sounds good to us! (Sicilia, Southern Italy)
