A traditional jam recipe made with only fruit & sugar - 70% bilberries & 30% 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 bilberries or 'forest blueberries' as they are known in Romania, are handpicked in August from the Calimani Mountains in county Mures. They are picked at an altitude of over 1000m, where is air is clean and the fruits are at their best. 

We love it on hot buttered toast, with yoghurt or served with pancakes. In Transylvania it is famously served with the popular dessert 'Papanasi' - sweet cheese doughnuts with sour cream and blueberry jam.
