One of the things we love most about our business is discovering unique foods that are unknown to most of the rest of the world. We are absolutely delighted to find this delicate Mugolio, pine cone bud syrup, from Italy's Dolomite Mountain region. There, Eleonoro Cunacia harvests the best buds of the Mugo Pines in May, puts them in glass pots where they are exposed to the Italian sunshine until late autumn. Then he filters the liquid that forms, adds sugar, and cooks over a slow fire until golden in color and absolutely delicious. Try it drizzled over ricotta, yogurt, gelato or panna cotta. Or with sauted apples and marscapone. Exquisite!
