Organic Sicilian Red Grapefruit Marmalade

The aromatic red grapefruit has become a staple of Italian fruit stands. This exquisite marmalade, with its clean, bright flavor, fresh citrus aroma and tiny bits of pulp, is one of San Giuliano's best. Swirl it into oatmeal and yogurt or whisk it into a salad dressing. Sweet and tangy, it complements soft, creamy cheeses like goat cheese or sheep's milk ricotta.

Red Grapefruit (Citrus × paradisi) is a subtropical hybrid citrus tree first bred in Barbados and introduced to Sicily in the 1920s. It was bred from the pomelo or shaddock (Citrus maxima) and the sweet orange (Citrus × sinensis) and is known for its highly acidic, tart flavor.

About Marchesi di San Giuliano
Fruit growing and marmalade production take place entirely on the San Guiliano estate. The fruit orchards have been organically managed since the 1980s. The red grapefruits are harvested only by hand during the sunny winter days, when the fruit is mature and at its peak flavor.

San Giuliano's recipe for their marmalade has remained unchanged for generations. They are made entirely by hand in small batches using only the finest freshly picked fruit. The grapefruit are first sliced and marinated in cold water overnight. The next day, the fruit is slowly cooked down and sugar added. No thickeners or preservatives are ever used.

The high proportion of fruit, combined with natural ingredients and strict production standards, ensure that San Giuliano marmalades have a traditional taste and texture.
