Onion Compote with Black Beer
The compote we are proposing is based on White Onion from Isernia with the addition of Molise craft beer.
This black beer compote, with a much stronger flavor than the other two types of compotes, goes well with
with roast meats, with cured meats and also with our cheeses giving a distinctly pleasant alcoholic hint.
Among the oldest fairs in Italy is the Saints Peter and Paul Fair in Isernia also known as the "onion fair" (every year from June 28 to
June 30) as the onion is the main protagonist.
By looking at old photographs of this fair and listening to information handed down to us by elderly Isernia farmers, we learned
that the authentic and traditional native onion is the white, flattened shaped one, often large or even very large in size
(with the weight exceeding 800 grams in some cases).
The production territory of the white onion is mainly the municipality of Isernia in Molise.
The processing of onions into Onion Compote with Black Beer also takes place in Molise.
Onions are composed of 90 i water, 1 i protein, very little fat and some major mineral elements such as potassium, calcium
By purchasing one of Isernia's white onion products, you will give the opportunity to continue the cultivation and spread of the bulb
Isernia, as well as allowing the continuation of the activities of the differently abled children of the L.A.I. Cooperative.
For every jar sold Molise.Store will donate €1 to the L.A.I. Cooperative of Isernia
L.A.I., Lavoro Anch'Io, is a social cooperative that deals with the labor integration of differently abled people.
