The crafting of this Sicilian prickly pear jam is the result of an entirely artisanal process from start to finish. From the picking of the ripe fruit all the way to cooking and jarring, the taste and sweet delicacy of the prickly pear is captured and revealed. This unique Sicilian specialty has a sweet and delicate flavor with a bright color. As with any fruit preserve or jam, it will be perfect with any type of bread or bagel, but a revolving theme at DITALIA is always to match sweet with savory. We suggest matching it along side any type of salty cheese like pecorino romano or add a bit to a vinaigrette for a salad. The Prickly Pear better known in Italy as "fichi d'india" is a seasonal and very popular fruit found all over southern Italy, in particularly the island of Sicily, which is where this all natural jam is made from. La Dispensa dei Golosi is a small artisan family business located in Messina, Sicily.
