The brief blanching of the peeled chestnuts is preceded by hand-tying the chestnuts into bundles of two. The long phase of candying then follows and takes from 7 to 10 days. The delicate flavor of orange blossom water further enriches the Chestnut flavor to produce a unforgettable delicacy.
We use only the highest quality ‘marroni’ selected from the best areas for cultivation in Italy: Tuscany, Naples, and naturally the Cuneo area of Piedmont where the famous cultivar “Torino” can be found.
Our Marron Glaces are available “ghiacciati” or in a sugar crust- which gives the product a shiny sheen and maintains the softness of the finished product – or in a sugar syrup.
