Blueberry jam, an Italian treasure
La blueberry jam it is one of the finest among all the different types of jam. It expresses the relationship between Italian culture and territory to the maximum, telling with an intense and balanced taste, the fresh air of the Alps and the Apennines, the unspoiled natural landscape, the generosity of the undergrowth.
Blueberry, a food known since ancient times and exalted since the Middle Ages. In the middle age, its peculiar virtues begin to emerge, confirmed today by studies on its high contents in Vitamins A, C and B, organic acids and anthocyanins.
Today, monasteries and some companies have the task and the art of an absolutely organic Italian production without jam additives based on blueberries.
Blueberry jam is an excellent ingredient for various types of desserts (just think of cheesecakes or shortcrust pies, including buckwheat) and manages to marry its delicacy perfectly with types of soft cheeses or cheeses with a strong character, such as Puzzone di Moena, Bitto (two IGTs from Lombardy and Trentino). The authentic and ancient flavor of this Italian jam fortifies its sweetness when accompanied by a slice of brie (even with raw milk).
