The fruit that is used to make Agrimontana’s wild blueberry jam is worlds away from the blueberries we are used to seeing in the grocery store. Smaller and more intensely flavored, the wild fruit that grows in the rolling hills of the Piedmont region packs a big punch in a tiny package. Not only are these blueberries delicious, they’re also higher in antioxidants and vitamins A and C than cultivated varieties. Talk about a super fruit!
This “extra jam” is so named because it is packed with as much fruit as can fit into the jar, without additional fillers or too much sugar. The result is a thick, luscious jam that spreads easily, with a deep, dark purple color that’s as hypnotic as the flavor. You’ll be able to tell the difference from the moment you open the jar—and you may never go back to regular blueberry jam again.
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.
