Organic Chocolate Hazelnut Crunchy Spread 200g

View larger Image

Seggiano's organic Crunchy Chocolate Hazelnut Spread is made by the DeAngelis family in the Sabine Hills north of Rome.  They use the famous Tuscia hazelnuts.  All ingredients are organic and the DeAngelis family is a truly artisan method of roasting and then preparing this excquisite and luxurious Organic Crunchy Hazelnut Chocolate Spread.

For five generations the DeAngelis family have farmed the Tonda Gentile Romana hazelnuts crop in Tuscia, on the north banks of the river Tiber. Originating in Mesopotamia, it is said that the Etruscan inhabitants introduced hazelnut cultivation to this region of Italy.

In the 1960’s Danilo DeAngelis started to create his truly delicious range of organic chocolate spreads, using his family’s hazelnut crop and his children now continue the family tradition.

In their small organic production they toast and mill the nuts, grind their own icing sugar, and make their own chocolate. They use simple traditional techniques and some of their equipment, such as the granite mill and the rotating drum oven, which is used to toast the nuts, date back to the early 20th century.

To make these sensational chocolate hazelnut spreads for Seggiano, 50 kg batches of nuts are toasted at low temperatures of circa 105º to preserve flavour and mineral salts; (the standard practice in industry is cooking at 205º.) The toasted nuts are stone milled, then mixed with ground cane sugar and cacao from Fairtrade or Equosolidade sources. The cacao the DeAngelis use, when it is available, is Bolivian el ceibo.

The creams are churned for long periods and sieved to produce these perfect chocolate nut spreads, avoiding the use of emulsifiers and stabilisers, which are standardly used in the chocolate nut spread industry. The ingredients , all ethically sourced, are then slowly ground, churned and sieved. This is slow food and you can really taste the difference.

Classic, irresistible, crunchy. Each jar contains 200g of this delicious crunchy organic chocolate hazelnut spread.

Serving suggestions: Delicious as a spread or a dip for cut apples or with ice cream.

100% organic ingredients: - Hazelnuts (50%), cane sugar, cold pressed sunflower seed oil, cocoa powder (9%), powdered milk.
