Citron - or cedro in Italian - is that Mediterranean citrus fruit that looks like a gigantic lemon. Citron's juicy pulp and thick white rind, which is surprisingly sweet, make it the perfect fruit for marmalade. Caffè Sicilia’s Citron Marmalade is made by pastry chef Corrado Assenza and has a vibrant shade of light green, with a great chunky texture, full of whole fruit. Its sweetness is balanced by a mild citrus flavor, like candied limes.   

This marmalade is mostly fruit! For citrus lovers, it’s the perfect way to enjoy the essence of real Sicilian citron on toast, pastries, cheeses, or as a filling for a traditional Italian crostata. The citrons used for this marmalade are grown locally in Sicily and transformed by master pastry chef Corrado Assenza in Noto. He insists on using the best ingredients he can find from local farms for his line of marmalades, nuts and sweets, all produced by hand in the shop’s kitchen. He is legendary, a genius of Sicilian sweets.
