Caffè Sicilia’s Apricot Jam has an incredible earthy aroma of dried apricots, and the deep flavor of cooked fruit. Sweet and delicious with a remarkably smooth consistency, this jam is out of this world on buttered toast for breakfast! 

This marmalade is mostly fruit! Pair it with your favorite cheeses, or use it as a filling for pastries, cookies, or cakes for a deliciously Sicilian treat any time of day. The apricots used for this marmalade are grown locally in Sicily and transformed by master pastry chef Corrado Assenza in Noto. He is legendary, a genius of Sicilian sweets. 

Caffè Sicilia is a pastry shop founded in 1892 on the main street of Noto, a picturesque baroque town perched on a hill southwest of Siracusa. Carlo and Corrado Assenza are now the fourth generation in their family to run the shop, with an intense passion for the flavors and traditions of their region. Corrado is considered a pioneer among Italian chefs; educated in chemistry and biology, he brings the precision of scientific research to his recipes, drawing his inspiration from the grand tradition of Sicilian pasticceria to devise awe-inspiring new flavor combinations. He insists on using the best ingredients he can find from local farms for his line of jams/marmalades, nuts and sweets, all produced by hand in the shop’s kitchen.
