What is fruttanuda?
naked jam

Our jam contains only fruit and sugar. That’s it.
No pectin, no lemon juice and certainly no preservatives or artificial flavours.
Instead, you’ll enjoy the flavour, colour and texture of fresh fruit.
Our jam is juicy and colourful.
Taste it. It’s like biting into a piece of ripe fruit. Add some sweetness to your life…

fresh jam

The fruit that we pick is always high quality, organic, in season and, if possible, locally grown. That's why the number of jars produced can vary from year to year. Don’t overlook that fruttanuda is called “extra”. This is the EU's way of saying that fruttanuda is jam-packed with at least 80 grams of fruit in every 100 grams of produced jam: an intense, divine experience!

unique jam

We like to go our own way. fruttanuda reflects this mind-set. Healthier, fresher, strikingly more delicious. Since we use only the ripest, freshest fruit, the jam can change from one season to the next. The density and colour vary. Dare to be different. Taste fruttanuda and get a singular sensation.

Forget about the traditional way of making jam that requires stirring the fruit for hours and hours over a hot stove … fruttanuda is different also in the way in which it is prepared.

We cook the fruit for just the right amount of time to maintain its natural flavour, colour and characteristics. We do everything: from cooking to bottling, from sticking on the labels to mailing the jam to you. And when you’re ready to taste fruttanuda, you'll find a range of sizes to choose from:

la piccola

30 grams (1 oz) the baby of the family:
a tantalizing taste, a yummy snack for you or a friend,
a sample of the wonderful world of fruttanuda.

la bio & la passionale

250 grams (8.8 oz) one size for two different delights:
choose a gusto that’s certified organic or sumptuously sophisticated.
First up, la bio, which in Italian means organic.
It's made with organic fruit and cane sugar.
Next, la passionale which, as the name implies, exudes passion all’Italiana. Arouse your discerning taste buds with jams made from grapefruit, tomato, red onion and pumpkin. Spoil yourself with the sweetness of blackberry and chestnuts.
They will seduce you.

la prima

330 grams (11.6 oz) your first love.
The fruttanuda that you’ll never forget.
It's love at first sight and taste.
Fall for the natural colours and zingy flavours of fresh fruit.
You’ll be enchanted by the succulent strawberry, sun-kissed apricot, fleshy peach, luscious plum, fabulous fig, delicate pear, tart apple and bursting orange.
There's never too much of a good thing.

Who’s in the kitchen?

I am the second in line (and the first girl). He’s the eighth (and the baby).
In all, there are eight of us - four girls and four boys. Actually, I take that back, our family is much, much bigger. We have brothers and sisters who were adopted or foster children or simply lived with us for a while.
A huge and hilarious, diverse and demanding family.
In our world, life revolved around the kitchen. It was here where “the Doc” - our mom, Teresa, an oncologist – somehow managed to prepare meals from scratch every day and for every hungry mouth. Delicious, complete meals created with a healthy dose of imagination.

However, she didn't do desserts. Recipes with strict measurements and that forced her to wait for the dough to rise simply didn’t light her fire.
Yet there was one exception: jam. The doc concocted a quick recipe that didn’t require hours and hours of stirring. The third in line (Anna Rita) and I inherited this recipe. Over the years, we perfected it, preparing jam thousands of times and giving hundreds of jars as gifts. In the meantime, I was travelling the world for work (international cooperation) yet always dreaming about desserts and jams. At the same time, he (number eight) was in Italy, mixing it up in the culinary world. With Maurizio and Valerio, he founded the catering company Magnolia Eventi yet was always dreaming of travelling the world. Two years ago, he said to me, "Why don’t we start making jam and we'll peddle it worldwide?" Yes, definitely!

So that’s how fruttanuda came into being. A hobby at first and then much more. The noisy, joy-filled kitchen of our youth, my dreams and his intuition, the enthusiasm and hard work of the Magnolia Eventi’s staff, our labour and many laughs, our dedication and desire to create wonderful jams that we're always perfecting. And the vitally important taste testers who’ve judged, critiqued and offered invaluable suggestions.
All that is vacuum-sealed into every fruttanuda jar.

Open a jar, take a taste test. And you'll understand.
