Organic Sicilian Nova Clementine Marmalade from Marchesi di San Giuliano
Small-Batch Organic Sicilian Citrus Marmalade
This vibrant and bittersweet marmalade is made from organic Sicilian clementine—a sweet, seedless variety of mandarin with a rich orange color. Marchesi di San Giuliano's marmalade recipe has remained the same for generations, always using peak-season citrus and never adding thickeners or preservatives.
How to use
This bright clementine marmalade pairs best with fresh, tart flavors. Swirl into yogurt, spoon over sheep's milk ricotta or dilute it with a few dashes of Marsala, or another sweet dessert wine, and use it as a topping for panna cotta.
About the producer
The estate of San Giuliano has belonged to the Marchesi Paternò Castello di San Giuliano for over 800 years, and in all this time the recipe for their marmalade has remained essentially unchanged. The 22-acre estate is located on the east coast of Sicily, in the foothills of Mt. Etna, an area boasting some of the most fertile soil in all of Sicily—and an abundance of citrus trees.
The recipe for these estate-bottled marmalades starts with organically-farmed citrus grown on the San Giuliano estate—Sicilian mandarin oranges, blood oranges and red grapefruit, just to name a few—hand-picked at the peak of ripeness. The fruit is sliced and marinated in cold water overnight, then drained and soaked in a mixture of water and raw cane sugar for another day. On the third day, the fruit is slowly cooked down in small batches, with cane sugar and nothing more (no preservatives or thickeners here). The end result of this small-batch process is an intensely fragrant marmalade, superior in flavor and texture that captures the essence of the citrus.
