What to do with "scrucchijate"? Italian black grape preserves with gelatin
I was gifted a bottle of imported scrucchijate of black grapes with skin (gelatinous) from Ambruzzo. When I look at the ingredients, I see it is only grapes with skin, sugar and pectin. The jar costed $20 and I am trying to figure out what to do with it. It is very thick and rich and almost paste like.
I dont know this product,
is it this? http://store.myabruzzo.net/products/s...
but you might want to see how it tastes with cheese. A lot of these fruit conserve products are excellent with cheese.
Have you tasted it yet?
there are also online (italian) recipes that suggest putting it in a rich tart crust, mixed with almonds or walnuts. This type of recipe also often includes a bit of citrus rind or liqueur. That sounds good!
and of course, you can always spread it on bread.
