Jam of Onion from Medicina
Pack of 250 gr
The cultivation of onions has always been synonymous with the Bolognese plain: the climatic conditions and the suitable territory, in fact, have led to the development of very effective and innovative techniques of cultivation and processing of the product since the beginning of the 20th century. In particular, there is a small village in the province of Bologna called Medicina which, thanks to the experience and skill of the farmers and traders of the area, becomes the real productive and commercial reference point for this excellence. Together with five other neighboring municipalities (Castel San Pietro, Dozza, Castel Guelfo, Ozzano and Imola) they decided to register the Cipolla di Medicina trademark at the Bologna Chamber of Commerce, precisely to distinguish and safeguard the product coming from these areas. We are talking about important numbers: almost 10% of the national onion production is attributable to the Cipolla di Medicina brand. Over the years, three different varieties are selected: Golden, Red and Yellow.
The Dorata is certainly the most famous and known, and is used for Friggione or sautéed, the Rossa is the sweetest and most delicate and is used to flavor salads or to accompany cheeses and boiled meats, the Bianca has a more crunchy and pungent flavor and is used for soups, omelettes or baked in the oven.
In 2004, given the growing importance in the country's economy, the Medicine Onion Consortium was founded to promote and spread it more and more.
The Medicine Onion Jam is created using the Medicine Red Onion; this raw material of excellence, combined with a long and skilful craftsmanship, creates a real delicacy of the past. At sight it has a dark red color tending to purplish, with a pentrant and persistent perfume and a sweet and sour but very delicate taste.
