Amarena di Cantiano Cherries in Spiced Syrup: A Marche Region Delicacy

A Flavorful Italian Treasure: Amarena di Cantiano Cherries, from the heart of the Marche region in Central Italy, are a culinary gem. These black cherries are preserved in a unique, lightly spiced syrup infused with cinnamon, clove, and almond oil, creating a sweet and rich flavor profile. This exquisite combination makes these cherries a treat and an exploration of Italian gastronomy.

Versatile in Sweet and Savory Dishes: Perfect for enhancing desserts like cheesecakes, panna cotta, or ice cream, these cherries add a sweet, spiced touch to classic cocktails like Manhattans and Old Fashioneds. Beyond sweets and drinks, they pair wonderfully with cheeses like aged Pecorino Romano and Basque sheep milk Ossau Iraty. In savory dishes, they can be transformed into delectable sauces that complement meats like duck, lamb shank, and pork loin.
