The Brittle of Fiumalbo

An ancient and beloved recipe that is still handed down today.

The Brittle of Fiumalbo (or Frignano) is a sweet treat typical of the mountain area of Modena where, even today, it is produced.
Its recipe is protected by the “Traditions and flavors of Modena” brand and it has been known since the 1700s, since ancient times it is typical in the Modenesi mountains and it seems that it never missed the great celebrations of the Governor of the Province of Frignano.
There is documentation in the historical archives of the abbeys, which tell of the brittle since 1700, but its origins are still uncertain; it seems that it was born in the 1200s, inspired by the Arabic and southern Italian sweets, often based on honey and dried fruit.
The brittle was so well known that, in 1890, Pellegrino Artusi inserted it in his famous book “Science in the kitchen and the art of eating well”.

Its unique taste, its “crunchy” and “meltingconsistency at the same time and the excellent ingredients of our mountains make it a delight that satisfies all tastes!
