A traditional Romanian plum preserve made from wild, organic, Transylvanian plums. Silvoița is a type of plum butter originating in the Transylvania region, it's also known as 'magiun de prune' thorughout Romania. 100% natural & completely free from additives. It's a jam like product made from very ripe plums but without any added sugar.
With its deeply intense plummy flavour and silky fudge like texture, we love this slathered on fresh bread with feta cheese or layered on pancakes.
Traditionally made in a cauldron like plan over a wood fire, the plums are cooked in the Autumn on a low heat for hours until a thick, dark, concentrated paste is produced. The cauldron must be stirred non-stop as the plums are not allowed to catch on the bottom. Traditionally housewives used to take shifts in guarding and mixing the plum magic.
