Curiosities and Anecdotes

The extra jam of figs, grapes and walnuts is very popular in Tuscany, where these ingredients are very common.

Contrary to what many people think, preserves as we understand them today are relatively recent. Although less reliable and safe predecessors existed in Ancient Rome and Ancient Egypt, it was only in the 1700s that we began to have “modern” preserves. In this period, in fact, the French pastry chef Nicolas Appert discovered the method of sterilizing jars with hermetic closure with boiling water.

Preserves and jams are foods that in the past played a fundamental role during famines and that over time have spread, in various forms, in Italy and around the world.
