Elizabeth Minchilli filmed these women from Puglia demonstrating how to string together hanging tomatoes, or pomodorini appesi, while attending Slow Food’s Salone del Gusto one year. Their technique differs markedly from that shown in another video. Here, the tomatoes are shown strung together individually and by their stem tops, rather than in small clusters of two or three tomatoes with a bit of vine attached between them.
Check out her post, “hanging tomatoes at the salone del gusto,” for more about these pomodorini. In addition to offering food workshops and tours of Rome, this year Elizabeth led a small group tour of this wondrous event. We can’t imagine a more fun person to go with.
