This marmalade leaves no room for flavor ambiguity; it is so fantastically Mandarin-y! Caffè Sicilia’s Mandarin Marmalade is really bursting with deep mandarin flavor, with an earthy, mildly tart citrus taste that’s not too sweet. It has a chunky texture of real fruit flecked with rind, which gives it a lovely multi-hued orange color. 

This marmalade is mostly fruit! And it's the perfect way to enjoy the essence of real Sicilian mandarins on toast, pastries, cheeses, or as a filling for a traditional Italian crostata. The pink grapefruit used for this marmalade are grown locally in Sicily and transformed by master pastry chef Corrado Assenza in Noto. He 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 marmalades, nuts and sweets, all produced by hand in the shop’s kitchen.
