Lemon marmalade is not as common as its orange-based cousin, but we’re on a mission to change that with this version from Agrimontana. After all, there’s always room to add more lemons to life!
Made using fragrant whole lemons grown in the southern regions of Sicily and Calabrian, this candy-yellow preserve is as versatile as it is delightful. While it’s intensely delicious on its own, we think one of the most fun ways to use this preserve is as an ingredient in recipes. It’s a unique way to add a deep, almost caramelized citrus flavor to a variety of dishes, from fruit tarts to roast chicken. However you use it, it will add a bit of Italian sunshine to your meal.
In the northwest of Italy, Piedmont shares a border with France and Switzerland. It’s a region that is reknowned for its agricultural bounty, home to decadent specialties including white truffles, barolo, and arborio rice. Azienda Agrimontana’s history in Piedmont began 50 years ago, when Cesare Bardini began selling jams, candied fruit, and chestnuts in 1972. Bardini had one mission: to share the natural riches of his home across Italy.
To this day, Agrimontana is dedicated to creating deliciously clean products using traditional methods, without added colors, preservatives, or flavorings. They focus on sustainable agriculture that preserves the beauty of their home while encouraging biodiversity.
