Yes, we know that Muffuletta is not a ferment at all, but a sandwich, and we here at Britt’s want to bring you our version of the Muffuletta Olive Salad that is most famously found in the well-known sandwich.
Muffuletta actually refers to a Sicilian bread, found in any Sicilian bakery. It is a 10-to-12-inch round loaf, usually flattened, with a soft, fluffy inside and a light crust, sprinkled with sesame seeds. This loaf is cut horizontally and stuffed with deli favorites; salami, ham, Swiss cheese, provolone, mortadella, and the flavorful Muffuletta Olive Salad. The original olive salad is a mix of carrots, celery, cauliflower, green and Kalamata olives, olive oil, oregano, and dried basil: mixed, and marinated for up to 24 hours. We follow the same original recipe but instead of fresh vegetables, we replace it with our fermented Britt’s Mix.
Britt’s Mix is a delicious blend of carrots, celery, red bell peppers, cauliflower, and spices (you can find our Britt’s Mix for sale by itself on our website!). Lactic Acid Fermentation brings a new depth to our Muffuletta, bringing out all the flavors of the vegetables and heightening their nutrition value at the same time.
Britt's Muffuletta is not only good on the famous sandwich but is a versatile spread that could be used in many ways. Any sandwich would benefit from the rich saltiness that is our Muffuletta, add it to your next turkey or roast beef sandwich. Add some to your next charcuterie board, it is obviously great with cheese, and you can't go wrong spreading it on some crispy sesame crackers. Top your next bruschetta with Muffuletta, it could be used toasted or cold. It is great with roasted chicken or spread it on some pita bread with hummus: the possibilities are endless!
