- SUGGESTED USES
- THE STORY
- Subtly sweet and more fruit-forward than other apricot jams
- Lower in sugar than other jams
- Made using traditional farming methods
- No additives or artificial processes
Apricots have long grown in Tunisia around the town of Tebourba, and whole pieces of the fruit have been preserved through a delicate canning process to comprise Les Moulins Mahjoub Apricot Jam. The jam is subtly sweet and more fruit- forward than its' American counterpart, which translates to less sugar being added. It is a perfect pairing for cow's milk cheeses, and is simply divine when warmed and used as a glaze for roast pork. It is, of course, the perfect spread for an apricot lover's morning breakfast breads.
- A delicious spread to serve with cow's milk cheeses
- Beautifully complements roast pork
Heir to a rich agricultural tradition, Les Moulins Mahjoub company, based in Tebourba, produces a range of traditional Mediterranean products. Tebourba is one of a few towns in Tunisia whose population has a quite special original character. It is composed almost entirely of descendants of the Moors driven out of Andalucía who settled on the site of the old Tuburbum Minus, on the left bank of the Medjerda.
The district of Tebourba is rich and fertile. It produces large amounts of cereals; there are abundant crops of olives, market gardening (truck farming) is highly developed and very varied.
Exceptionally good soil and growing methods that respect the natural and biological balances of nature, combined with the use of traditional farming methods and hand processing techniques, enable Les Moulins Mahjoub 'haute couture' products to be made, meeting the most stringent quality standards.
All Mahjoub products are produced with no additives or artificial processes.
