Savour the delights of Corsican autumn!

To be savoured without moderation!

Here's a small list of Corsica's autumn delights. Fine palates will appreciate the quality of the products of an authentic land where the scents of chestnuts and citrus fruits mingle with the savoury sweetness of charcuterie, creamy cheeses, wines, and .liqueurs

The chestnut "a castagna" of course, the island's signature fruit, and the delicious marrons glacés made from October to December for the festive season.

The citron "l'alimea" is as good candied as it is eaten.

Recipe idea: gingerbread with chestnut flour and candied citron


 The clementine "a mandarina", picked with its leaves on

 The fig "u ficu", as delicious fresh as in jam

The autumn honey “u mele” or "autumn maquis” honey, made mainly from arbutus trees
