Cherries in Moscato 570g

After being thoroughly washed, they are jarred.

Cherries in wine are delightful on their own, perfect after dinner, or can be used as a versatile ingredient for making chocolates, cakes, spoon desserts, or to enhance a good bowl of ice cream.

Madernassa Pears 570g

Madernassa is a pear variety native to the Piedmont region, specifically in the Roero area. It is in this very land that the mother plant grew, originating in the late 1700s on the Cascina Gavello estate and living for an impressive 130 years until it was felled in 1914. Common belief holds that Madernassa resulted from a natural cross between the Martin Sec cultivar and wild pears. Like many indigenous species, it remained largely unknown for a long time, with local farmers appreciating its crispness and the aromatic enhancement it gained through cooking, whether in wine or in the oven. Thanks to its crispness, this hand-cut pear, preserved in water and cane sugar without the addition of preservatives, lends itself to many uses and recipes: sliced thinly to accompany cheeses with fresh herbs and honey, suitable for preparing delicious risottos or various versions of cake, or simply cooked in a good red wine for a delightful dessert.
