Pietro Romanengo Confectionery at one time also candied the thick rind of citron fruits, hence the name of this specialty, "cetronetti".
Today strips of fresh orange zest lie at the heart of our "cetronetto" dragées. Selected for their intense fragrance, the rinds are candied according to the age-old process and then covered in a crunchy sugar coating with pure sugar syrup. Even the sugar coating gives off a distinct aroma of sunny oranges.
This traditional specialty hails directly from the ancient material culture of Eastern peoples who knew how to preserve parts of flowers, fruits, seeds, leaves and plants with sugar. During the Middle Ages in Europe, these sweets known as "chamber spices" were exchanged as highly regarded gifts, particularly to ingratiate judges, hence the old saying: "Non deliberatur donec solvetur species".
