Made with Sicilian bitter orange—also known as Seville orange—this marmalade has an intense, penetrating and almost spicy flavor. Spread it on crusty pieces of toast or use it in a tart. Alternatively, mix it with red pepper flakes and vinegar for a delicious chutney to accompany any grilled meat.
At San Giuliano, the citrus fruit is harvested only by hand during the sunny winter days, when the fruit is mature and at the peak of flavor. The recipe for the marmalade has remained unchanged for generations. Made entirely by hand in small batches using only the finest of the freshly picked fruit, the oranges are sliced and marinated in cold water overnight. On the second day, the sliced fruit is drained, then set to marinate again overnight in water and raw sugar cane. The third day the fruit is slowly cooked down, adding sugar and juice. No thickeners or preservatives are ever used.
The high proportion of fruit, combined with natural ingredients and strict production standards, insure that San Giuliano marmalades have a traditional taste and texture.
