Bernardo’s Mermeladas Lanzarote has been producing top quality jam according to home recipes for 25 years. Over the years, new varieties and flavors have been added. And in addition to the sweet jams, there are also typical Canarian mojos, indispensable for dishes that should taste like Lanzarote.
It all began in 1993 when, after years in the restaurant business, in his constant search for new flavors, the chef, Bernardo, turned a product from Lanzarote into a delicious jam: the prickly pear. At first, the “mermelada tuno indio” was only available in one of Bernardo’s restaurants. But demand grew and just two years later, Bernardo’s Mermeladas Lanzarote began to be produced for sale in markets and supermarkets.
Today you can find the delicious jams in many supermarket chains on the island, for example at HiperDino. From the first days until today, quality has always been the focus and every new flavor has been refined for months until it finally came onto the market. Today, Bernardo’s jams come in a wide variety of flavors:
- Papaya Orange
- Kaktus/Ale Vera
- Feige/Aloe Vera
- Banane/Aloe Vera
All jams are made without coloring or preservatives. If you are not on the island, you can also order them online in Bernardo’s Mermeladas online shop. There you will also find various trial packages.
The range of sweet jams was later supplemented by a range of products that for many people internalized the taste of the Canary Islands: the Mojos Canarios. At Bernardo’s you will find the classics Mojo verde, Mojo Rojo and the spicy Mojo Rojo Picón.
These sauces are served in the Canary Islands together with the typical papas arrugadas, but they also taste good with meat and fish dishes.
As usual in Lanzarote, a good meal should be rounded off with a small liqueur. When creating his liqueurs, Bernardo remembered his favorite fruit from the early days: the cactus fruit.
The range currently includes a cactus liqueur, a goat milk liqueur and the original Cabrajillo goat milk liqueur with a dash of coffee. In addition to the 0.5l bottles, the liqueurs are also available in the airplane-friendly 100ml version so that they also work as souvenirs.
