Wild apple and strawberry bavarese.
“The small wild apples are picked, selected, carefully washed, the core is removed and they are placed in a saucepan to boil for a few hours with a pinch of cinnamon powder. When they are cooled, they are blended, still with the peel, which remains in the sweet giving to it the sensation that one is really tasting this apple in an innovative colour and form (genuine flavour-original presentation).
Once blended, store in a vacuum pace bag, labelled and frozen straightaway. When needed, it is brought to the boil,
in this way we manage to cover almost the entire year producing this sweet”.
