Our preserves, made according to our traditional recipe, contain only top-grade Italian fruit picked at the proper ripeness, and no additives whatsoever. Like all Agrimontana products, our preserves contain only the amount of sugar necessary to naturally preserve and fix the flavours, while pectins, when added, are used with the sole purpose of improving oven resistance, and are obtained from apples and citric fruits. Our jars are filled with hot preserves, which are then rapidly cooled.
In our EXTRA PRESERVES and SMOOTH PRESERVES, fruit is cooked whole at low temperatures, slowly, according to artisan tradition, and concentrated under vacuum, at low temperatures.
In our STRACCIATA jams, fruits are cooked in basins, lightly candied, randomly chopped while moving on to vacuum cooking at 60° C. Very stable and pleasant to the tongue, they are perfect for pies and as filling.
Our STRACCIATELLE, made with candying syrup and a part of candied fruit, combine a high percentage of fruit with a specific natural pectin, making them perfect for use in the oven and as ice cream marbling.
Our FRUIT COMPOTES contain fructose and low sugar contents, and are therefore less sweet and contain fewer calories than traditional preserves: 175 kcal per 100 grams, as opposed to 260 kcal per 100 grams.
