We know the place. We know the producer. We know just the thing.
Our producer uses clementines grown locally in the Sibari plain in Calabria. The clementines are hand picked and worked immediately to guarantee that the marmalade retains all the fruit flavour. Sugar is only added at the end of cooking to avoid it turning dark. Contains no pectin.
Known as the ‘toe’ of the ‘boot’ of the country, Calabria is the most southern region of mainland Italy. Its unusual mix of Mediterranean coastline and mountainous environments means it has high temperatures in the summer and low temperatures in the winter. Coupled with great hillside settings it creates the perfect climate for growing olives. The summery heat allows for very hot chillies to grow, contributing to the most famous product of the region, nduja. This is a spicy chilli and pork fat spread which is usually smeared over toasted Italian bread. No longer associated with the old influences of the Mafiosa, Calabria has been become an authentic, vibrant and bustling region of Italy.
