In our farm, Prunotto Mariangela, we take great care with our apricots, allowing them to ripen on the tree rather than in cold storage, and we process them immediately after they are picked.
The tender little apricots, about the size of a walnut, aregently cooked and placed in glass jars in light syrup made just with water and pure cane sugar.
There are no preservatives or flavorings added, and indeed, no other ingredients whatsoever are used.
The result is luscious fruit bursting with sweet, nutty flavor, an über apricot, the like of which one could only match by eating the ripe apricots directly from the tree.
But then you’d miss the lovely rich syrup that, because of its almond-like flavor, could find second life as a sweetener for cocktails.
But don’t stop there.
Use these succulent apricots to top almost any dessert, ice cream, or with Piemontese cheeses.
They are also the perfect complement to savory foods like pork chops, pork loin, duck breasts and even roast chicken.
