Exquisite New Items from Sicily

Exquisite preserves/marmalades produced at the San Giuliano Orchards,
a 22-acre estate located near Siracusa on the east coast of Sicily.
Here sun, wind and soil create a supportive terroir for citrus trees to thrive.
For 800 years the Marchesi Castello family have made it possible for
natures's bounty to thrive and reach your table. The farm and citrus orchards
have been organically managed since 1980.
Estate bottled, these marmalades are made entirely by hand in small batches,
with no preservatives or thickners -- just pure fruit and sugar.

 


Bitter Orange Marmalade

This marmalade is made with fresh Sicilian bitter oranges,(also known as Seville orange-citrus x aurantium -- a hybrid between Citrus maxima and Citrus reticulata), and just the right amount of sugar, That's all!
The freshly picked oranges are sliced and marinated overnight in cold water. On the second day, the fruit is drained, then marinated again overnight in water and raw sugar cane. On the third day the fruit is slowly cooked with sugar; no thickeners or preservatives are ever used. Thus a higher proportion of fruit is achieved.
