description

The aromatic red grapefruit has become a staple of Italian fruit stands. This exquisite marmalade, with its clean, bright flavor, fresh citrus aroma and tiny bits of pulp, is one of San Giuliano's best. Swirl it into oatmeal and yogurt or whisk it into a salad dressing. Sweet and tangy, it complements soft, creamy cheeses like goat cheese or sheep's milk ricotta.

Red Grapefruit (Citrus × paradisi) is a subtropical hybrid citrus tree first bred in Barbados and introduced to Sicily in the 1920s. It was bred from the pomelo or shaddock (Citrus maxima) and the sweet orange (Citrus × sinensis) and is known for its highly acidic, tart flavor.

The products of Marchesi di San Giuliano are crafted entirely by hand, to bring forth the best qualities of each honey and jam. The 22-acre estate boasts fertile soil and abundant citrus trees. The result is an absolutely natural marmalade that stands out for its superior flavor and intense fragrance.  

This top quality marmalade comes to us from the area between Catania and Siracusa on the eastern coast of Sicily. The ancient farm and castle date back 800 years, and some of the orange trees are producing after hundreds of years. Organic production.

When the marmalade and jams are made, they are done so with only fresh fruit, never chilled, slowly cooked with sugar and lemon juice. No thickeners or preservatives are ever used. The high proportion of fruit ensures a traditional taste and texture.

Ideas? Marmalades are ideal on slices of freshly toasted bread, excellent eaten warm, with a drop of brandy, or as a topping on rich vanilla or honey ice cream or gelato. Serve with breakfast breads, glaze roasted poultry or pork, serve on ice cream. Bake a crostata or holiday treats!

Ingredients: Organic Red Grapefruit, Organic Sugar.
