Panforte, simply translated, is "strong-bread". Panforte is traditionally a dense mix of almonds, candied fruit sweetened with honey and spices. In many parts of the world, you can find panforte year round but it was traditionally a Christmas sweetbread and that is rooted deep into our traditions here at Ditalia as well.
Panforte is round and dense with several styles available, the most popular being the sweet Panforte Margherita.
This typical and traditional recipe of Panforte Margherita from Siena is still prepared according to the old, original recipe with candied fruits and almonds and an exclusive mixture of spices.
