The wild bitter cherry is considered to make one of the most refined jams often known as 'the queen of the pantry'.

A traditional jam recipe made with only fruit & sugar. That's it! 100% natural & free from additives. Prepared in the traditional way - in a cauldron like pan over a wood fire. This jam is made by hand by four housewives from the village of Idicel in North Transylvania, who ensure the wood fire is prepared for every batch of jam. The wild bitter cherries are handpicked from Idicel forest.

This jam packs a punch with a slight bitter flavour surrounded by sweetness. We love it on hot buttered toast, with yoghurt, paired with soft cheese or dolloped on ice cream.

For each cauldron on the fire Razvan uses 10kg of wild bitter cherries and 5kg of sugar. The bitter cherry now more rarely found make this product even more of a gem.

Please be aware that this is a hand made product - although all measures are taken to remove stones from the fruit, there is the chance some may remain.
