Description

When we get our shipment of honey from Gaec de Lozari, they also send along a small selection of their homemade jams. Using recipes handed down from her grandmother "Mammo", Marylene creates amazingly intense fruit preserves.This citrus jam is a little bit sweet but mostly shows off the delicate bitterness of the citrus fruits. Bits of rind are minced and blended with the delicious fruit.

Gaec de Lozari

François and Michel Gacon, the founders of Gaec de Lozari, produced Corsican honey for over 40 years. These rustic, raw honeys are naturally crystallized and full of wild flavors – some floral and sweet, others funky and bitter. Their unique and special character are an apt reflection of the Corsican landscape that produces them. The company has 500 to 600 hives they move throughout the year to capture the blooms at just the right time. Hives travel from the rough coastline up to 1000 meters high into the mountains, following the flowering Corsican vegetation. Introducing this honey to Formaggio Kitchen's customers was a labor of love for owners Ihsan and Valerie Gurdal. The Gurdals first discovered the Lozari honeys when visiting a Paris boutique in 2002. They immediately reached out to Michel to see if they could bring his honey to Formaggio Kitchen. At the time, Gaec de Lozari sold all they produced within France, with no plans to export to the US. Undaunted, Ihsan and Valerie continued their correspondence and over time, Michel agreed to a trial shipment. Six months after their first conversation, the order was shipped. In 2012, Michel fell ill, and production was difficult even for Lozari's local customers. Ihsan and Valerie paid a visit to Michel's daughter Marylène in Corsica. The visit was a huge success, not only to revive the relationship with this beloved honey producer, but also to bring in some of Marylène’s traditional Corsican preserves.
