Marmellata di Cipolla Rossa di Acquaviva is a delicious onion jam, prepared with the sweet red onions from Acquaviva delle Fonti. A town in the province of Bari in Puglia.
The onion is a special kind that only grows around the town of Acquaviva. This red onion is recognizable by its flat shape, red color on the outside which becomes white inside. This onion has a delicious sweet and mild flavor.
The quality of the soil in Acquaviva delle Fonti, well-drained and aerated, deep, rich in potassium, moderately loose-packed and tending towards muddiness, gives the local red onions characteristics for which they have been renowned since the 19th century.
This jam is produced in Apulia Region, by Dolceria Sapone.
