Drawing on their rich history making preserved wild cherries, Fabbri's candied ginger in syrup is a sweet-and-spicy treat. Fragrant nuggets of fresh ginger are soaked in a turmeric-infused sugar syrup that's just the right balance of sweet and piquant. It's a sophisticated cocktail ingredient that's also delicious in baked goods or just spooned over gelato.
Fabbri of Bologna has been making wild cherries in amarena syrup since 1905. The top-secret recipe for these sweet little cherries hasn't changed in over 100 years, perfected by Gennaro Fabbri's wife, Rachele, in 1915. What began as a distillery making cherry brandy in Ferrara, in the northern Emilia-Romagna region, quickly became best-known for its irresistible candied cherries. That iconic blue-and-white ceramic jar, first designed in the 1930s, certainly helped! Today, fifth-generation members of the Fabbri family are carrying on the legacy of Gennaro and Rachele with their internationally renowned cherries.
Bonus: The sizable signature jar makes a beautiful keepsake once the ginger is gone! Giada uses hers to hold fresh flowers—its timeless design fits into any room in the house.
