Known in England as yellow/ red/ black bullace or simply wild plums and in Romania as corcodușe, these fruits are a variety of plum similar to that of a damson or sloe. They are often found growing in woods, hedgerows, gardens & orchards.

This traditional, high quality jam is made by hand in Saschiz, Transylvania with yellow and red bullace, rum, ginger, cinnamon & sugar. That's it! 100% natural & free from additives. The taste is sweet and slightly tart with a beautiful flavour of winter spices and brown sugar that come from the addition of rum, ginger & cinnamon.

'Pivnița Bunicii' means Grandma's Cellar or Pantry, it has this name because when visiting 'Grandma', she would always retrieve food to serve at her table from the cellar. Before the days of electricity & gas, grandma preserved food for the winter in her cellar, built under the house exactly for this purpose, with a steady cool temperature & a humidity than could be maintained throughout the year.

The aim of Pivnița Bunicii is to provide support to rural communities in the area, by purchasing the people's produce or by harvesting wild flowers, fruits & berries, to process into traditional products with a superb taste... 'just like grandma used to make'.
