Notes

These marzipan fruits are entirely made by hand following ancient methods. Just a few fruits are shaped in a mould: most of them are shaped by hand and all of them are refined employing the ability of craftsmen, so skilled as to make each piece a unique one. Colouring the fruits, again is a process made by hand following some steps that make the fruits themselves "become ripe" in the hands of the artisans, looking like real ones.

 

The Sicilian tradition is to give these tasty Marzipan as gift during Christmas but also they make the perfect dinner dessert for any occasion.

Description

Details

Fratelli Freni Pasticceria Siciliana was founded in Milan in 1914 by Salvatore Freni, from Sicily. Nowadays they can pride themselves to being the first Sicilian confectionery shop founded in northern Italy selling traditional sweets made in the traditional way. Most famous for their marzipan and marzipan fruit (Frutta Martorana), they are well known across Italy as they have created the most incredible artifacts that are then employed by many studios for photos, movies, tv programs, magazines, events and public performances. 

Traditionally the marzipan fruits, a symbol among the sweet specialties from Sicily, originate from the heart of Sicily exactly from the Martoranca Convent in Palermo. The tradition says that during the Norman rule, the nuns of the nearby Benedictin monastery, founded in 1194 by the noble Elisa Martorana, had prepared, for the first time ever, some fruit, it seems some citrus, then hung up on the trees in place of those already picked up, so to enrich the appearance of the Convent garden during the visit of a very important personalities. Hence the name of the paste employed: Pasta Reale - translated as Royal Paste - originally made of sugar or honey, grounded almonds and egg white, through the years has been modified and become what we know today as marzipan and Frutta Martorana (marzipan fruit).
