Made entirely by hand in small batches using only the finest of the 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.
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.
Spread on flaky, buttery biscuits or seeded toast
Top hazelnut, chocolate or pistachio gelato

About Marchesi di San Giuliano
At San Giuliano, the fruit orchards have been organically managed since the 1980s. The clementines are hand-harvested during the last weeks of November, when the fruit is mature and at the peak of sweetness. The recipe for the marmalade has remained unchanged for generations.
