About Don Bocarte Anchovies
Before these delicious Cantabrian anchovies can even be preserved, there are many steps to account for in advance. First, the anchovies must be preserved in vats of salt bins to cure them to absolute perfection–extracting the moisture from within to provide them with a delightful texture. Once they are removed from these bins of salt, each individual anchovy is deboned and cleaned by hand. One by one. This rigorous cleaning process ensures that each individual anchovy meets the quality standards of Don Bocarte and stays consistent from tin to tin.
Once the anchovies are ready to be canned, they are packed uniformly into each tin to be presented beautifully. They are then preserved in premium extra virgin olive oil, rather than salt, to enhance their flavor profile out of the tin. This is a truly unique sign of quality, as these Cantabrian anchovies must be kept within refrigeration and become more delicate
The result? A deliciously tender and meaty anchovy that’s smooth in texture and rich in flavor. We can assure you you have never had a tinned anchovy quite like this. The same quality standards Don Bocarte presents for their anchovies, they do for the rest of their tinned fish.
