In our orchards of Alba, the capital of the Langhe and Roero hills, we cultivate plums and we picked them at the right point of ripeness. They are processed within few hours, adding only the syrup natural “light” made just with water and sugar cane.
The result is a product preserved with the same characteristics of a fresh product with unique organoleptic properties and enhances the distinctive flavor of this particular variety of plum.
They are great to taste the natural, or simply opening the jar to make delicious desserts, and ice cream. The syrup is good to drink!
