Aubergines from Almagro come from the region of Campo de Calatrava, in Ciudad Real. This unique, beautiful area is where this typically Manchegan product is grown. The dressing is made from vinegar, olive oil, salt, cumin, garlic, paprika and water, fermented for about 14 days. This dish’s origins can be traced back to Arabic cuisine, with an extra layer of sophistication coming through the stuffing with red pepper, as tradition dictates. A top-quality product quintessential of our land and region.
