The story of Les Confitures de Raphaël started when Raphaël returned to his home-region, Saint-Malo. Formerly a worker in an organic food plantation, he fell in love with the fruit and sugar alchemy and started a jam factory in his grandmother’s kitchen. The family business devotes all its attention to the flavor and the freshness of the original fruit.
To make this Apricot jam, Raphaël chose the best varieties of sun-gorged apricots grown in the South of France. Then he cooked them à froid (cold) until he had coaxed out all of the amazing flavors and aromas that they had to offer. This unique and artisanal process imparts all the original taste to this Apricot jam.
