THE SWEETNESS AND TRADITION OF THE BEST ITALIAN JAMS ONLINE
There are thousands of types on the market: sharp or sweet-tasting and made with only the ripest fruit, jams, marmalades and mustard fruits are the quintessential storecupboard staple.
To offer you an interesting selection of the best Italian jams online, we have chosen unique products that are hard to find on supermarket shelves, because they are made with lesser-known fruits- often wild ones - such as jujubes, mulberries and cherry-plums. These are jams with an old-fashioned flavour, skilfully created by artisanal producers who are dedicated to rediscovering the old recipes, the ones that were made with whatever the land and the forest had to offer during that season.
If you love more classic flavours, you will find fantastic jams made with Icea-certified organic fruit and a very small amount of organic brown sugar. They contain no preservatives or chemical additives. The fruit used in these is always native and the seeds come from strictly organic sources. Harvesting is done by hand only when ripe, and the jam is made just a stone’s throw from the fields, so as to keep intact all the great taste of these high-quality raw materials.
Perfect for creating superb desserts or to spread on bread as a snack or breakfast, the sweetness of these jams also lends itself well to interesting combinations with both fresh and aged cheeses. The description for each product gives the best combinations, but feel free to have fun experimenting!
If you’re looking for a bolder, slightly spicy flavour, what you need is mustard fruits. An excellent accompaniment to boiled meats and rich, creamy cheeses - such as mascarpone and gorgonzola - our catalogue also includes interesting mustard fruits made with innovative recipes which use original ingredients such as kiwis, strawberries and ginger. Their fresh flavour also goes well with fish and white meat dishes.
And if you want to enjoy your cheese-tasting experience with something a little silkier on the palate, you might like to try jellies. Try them warm on our cow’s milk cheeses!
