Marmellate – Jams and Spreads

A variety of specialty organic Italian Marmellate – Jams and Spreads in a unique square jar – perfect for a gift or for something different!

Italissima has an excellent variety of jams and spreads. From the most traditional flavours: strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, fig, blood orange, and peach to more unique, specialty flavours including amaretto squash, pear Williams, pink grapefruit, and many others, you will definitely find what you are looking for.

Try this secret appetizer:  all you need for these little wonders are a good fresh baguette, a jar of fig jam, some salty prosciutto, plain goat cheese and some fresh basil.

Slice six 1/2-inch slices of bread from a baguette slightly on the diagonal.  Place on a baking sheet and brush generously with the Italissima olive oil. Sprinkle a little salt on each slice.  Bake for about 10 minutes, or until crisp and slightly golden.  Watch that they do not burn.  Remove from oven and cool slightly.

Spread some goat cheese on each crostini.  Spread about a tablespoon of Italissima fig jam on top of the goat cheese. Fold the half slices of prosciutto and place on top of each crostini.  Lay a fresh basil leaf on each and serve.
