The jar of prickly pear jam resembles a precious stone.
A fire agate that is the result of three equally precious pulps: that of white, red and yellow prickly pears.
The flavor is persuasive, the texture pulpy. A jewel of taste that ennobles and embellishes any dessert, from a simple tart to panettone and high pastry doves.
To make our jam, we use the so-called bastardoni. These are late fruits, the result of an autumn flowering, which occurs by interrupting the spring one with the "scozzolatura". In this way the sulfarin (the yellow fruit), the sanguine (red) and the muscaredda (white) are bigger and juicier and, above all, sweet.
Our extra jam contains 120% fruit per 100g of finished product. We use the fruits of the first scozzolatura, which traditionally takes place on 13 June.
These are harvested between late October and November and have fewer seeds.
Once harvested, they are subjected to a short cooking, at a low temperature and vacuum-packed, in order to preserve all the flavor and aroma of the juiciest prickly pears.
The prickly pear is known above all for its purifying and draining properties, but it is also an excellent food for athletes, thanks to its high content in water and mineral salts, which give satiety and reduce the intake of fats and sugars.
