For the most luscious fruit flavors from the Italian countryside, look no further than this mini jam sampler from Agrimontana. Picked at the height of ripeness, all of the fruits used to make these jams in the northern Piedmont region are the pure essence of Italian sunshine.
This set includes 1.5-ounce jars of:
Cherry extra jam: The sour cherries used for this jam have a mellow acidity that is rounded out by a burst of pure cherry perfume. When cooked over low temperature in the old-fashioned way, the flavor comes into perfect balance, with a sweet tartness that retain the inimitable essence of fresh cherries.
Bitter orange marmalade: True to their name, the ancient citrus fruits that make this marmalade are fragrant, tart, and bitter with aromatic essential oils. This rich marmalade combines the juicy pulp of the fruit with small pieces of peel for a well-balanced orange preserve.
Peach extra jam: The peaches used to make this confettura are grown in the gently rolling hills of the Piedmont region. They’re fragrant, juicy, and just tangy enough to make any mouth water.
Strawberry extra jam: Traditionally in season in late May through June, strawberries are a sign of the beginning of summer in Italy. Luckily for us, this sweet, juicy jam is available all year round.
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.
