A favorite stocking stuffer, the sweet, juicy mandarin is also known as a "Christmas Orange." The Sicilian variety has a deep orange color and a smooth, thick skin. This marmalade is rich and warm, with citrus notes that keep it bright and light. Bake it into your favorite scone recipe or spoon it over a cake.
About Marchesi di San Giuliano
The San Giuliano marmalades are estate-grown and crafted: the fruit utilized and the production takes place entirely on the San Guiliano estate. The fruit orchard has been organically managed since the 1980s.
The mandarins are hand-harvested during the last weeks of November into December, when the fruit is mature and at the peak of sweetness. The recipe for their marmalade has remained unchanged for generations. They are made entirely by hand in small batches using only the finest freshly picked fruit. The mandarins are first sliced and marinated in cold water overnight. The next day, the fruit is slowly cooked down and sugar added. No thickeners or preservatives are ever used.
The high proportion of fruit, combined with natural ingredients and strict production standards, ensure that San Giuliano marmalades have a traditional taste and texture.
