Saturday morning is the big outdoor market day in Sperlonga. One of my favorite vendors has an assortment of olives cured by his family owned azienda agricola, including local Gaeta olives. He also prepares whole red peppers in an agrodolce bath. Most of the peppers go by the wayside as the process is lengthy and includes sun and air curing first and it's easy for peppers to disintegrate in this phase. But those that make it are amazing and delicious as a side dish, in salads or on their own.
