From the cherry trees planted when Fabio and Anna bought the Casa Matilda farmhouse, a compote of intense red cherries with a wonderfully spreadable consistency. Harvested at peak maturity, Casa Matilda cherries are grown in a natural regime and are full of taste and aroma. This compote is the version closest to the natural form of cherries: the percentage of added sugar is almost imperceptible to the palate and thanks to very low temperature pasteurization all the aromas and scents of fresh fruit are kept intact. Arm yourself with bread and butter, crossaint, baste tarts and roll up your sleeves for the next cheesecakes: it will be a triumph.
Ingredients: cherries, brown sugar
For Casa Matilda in Dogliani, preserving the fruit and vegetables grown in the company's gardens and orchards is a serious matter. Inside each jar, only raw materials of impeccable quality raised with dedication in the fields (and without the help of pesticides and herbicides) and selected with craftsmanship. The recipes are those of the Piedmontese tradition handed down from past generations and each of the compotes, mustards, appetizers and creams faithfully brings the taste of the main ingredient, which is never alternated with the use of thickeners, preservatives, additives, flavors or artificial colors . The fruit is always harvested and processed at the perfect degree of ripeness, allowing for the addition of only a minimal percentage of cane sugar and fresh lemon juice to balance it, while for the vegetables, only extra virgin olive oil of exceptional quality, unrefined salt refined, Langa wine vinegar and aromatic herbs from the same garden. Pasteurization takes place at a very low temperature over indirect heat, allowing the original colors and aromas of fresh fruit and vegetables to be preserved. Those of Casa Matilda are small glass masterpieces, bijoux that bring all the authenticity of the Piedmontese countryside.
