Are you a fan of the sweet and tangy taste of marmalade? Or maybe you're curious about trying it for the first time. Look no further! In this ultimate guide, we will take you on a journey to discover the fascinating world of marmalade making and cooking. From selecting the perfect oranges to creating beautiful jars of homemade marmalade, we have got you covered.

What Is Marmalade?

Marmalade is a delicious, citrus-based preserve that is commonly enjoyed on toast, with scones, or as a glaze for meats. It originated in Portugal and gained popularity in Britain, becoming a traditional breakfast staple. The key ingredient in marmalade is oranges, although variations with lemon, grapefruit, or other citrus fruits are also popular.

Choosing the Perfect Oranges

The first step to making delicious marmalade is selecting the right oranges. Seville oranges are commonly used due to their high pectin content, which helps the marmalade set properly. They have a slightly bitter taste that combines perfectly with the sweetness of sugar.

When choosing Seville oranges, look for fruits that are heavy for their size and have a vibrant orange color. Avoid fruits that are soft, bruised, or have blemishes, as they may not yield the best results.

The Art of Preserving

Making marmalade is an art that requires patience and precision. The fruit needs to be sliced thinly and evenly, and the peel needs to be removed carefully to avoid any bitterness. Once the fruit is prepared, it is boiled gently with sugar and water until it reaches the desired consistency.

One important tip is to test the marmalade's setting point by placing a small amount on a chilled plate. If it wrinkles when lightly pushed with a finger, it is ready. If not, continue boiling for a few more minutes and repeat the test.

Recipes to Delight Your Taste Buds

Now that you have mastered the art of making marmalade, let's dive into some delightful recipes that will elevate your culinary creations:

1. Classic Orange Marmalade

This timeless recipe combines the tanginess of Seville oranges with the perfect balance of sweetness. Spread it on warm toast or use it as a glaze for roasted chicken or pork.

2. Lemon-Infused Marmalade

Add a refreshing twist to your marmalade by incorporating the zesty flavors of lemons. This variation pairs well with scones and makes a refreshing filling for cakes and tarts.

3. Blood Orange and Cardamom Marmalade

Discover the exotic flavors of blood oranges and the warmth of cardamom in this unique marmalade recipe. It adds a burst of flavor to your morning toast or can be enjoyed as a condiment with cheese and charcuterie.

4. Grapefruit and Ginger Marmalade

The vibrant flavors of grapefruit combined with the spicy kick of ginger create a marmalade that will awaken your taste buds. Enjoy it on warm buttered crumpets or use it as a glaze for grilled salmon.

Marmalade in Culinary Creations

Marmalade is not limited to being enjoyed solely on toast. Its versatility makes it a fantastic ingredient in various recipes. Here are some innovative ways to incorporate marmalade into your culinary creations:

1. Marmalade Glazed Ham

Impress your guests with a mouth-watering ham glazed to perfection with marmalade. The combination of sweet and tangy flavors is sure to make this dish a standout during festive gatherings.

2. Marmalade Marinated Chicken

Elevate your chicken dishes by marinating them in a mixture of marmalade, herbs, and spices. The result is tender, juicy meat with a delightful hint of citrus.

3. Marmalade Vinaigrette

Whisk together marmalade, vinegar, olive oil, and mustard to create a tangy vinaigrette that will liven up your salads. The sweetness of the marmalade provides a perfect balance to the acidity of the vinegar.

4. Marmalade Thumbprint Cookies

Transform your traditional thumbprint cookies by adding a dollop of marmalade in the center. The burst of citrus flavor takes these cookies to a whole new level of deliciousness.

Making Memories with Homemade Marmalade

Now that you have discovered the joy of making and cooking with marmalade, it's time to create memories with your creations. Share your homemade marmalade with friends and family, or gift a jar to someone special. Not only will you enjoy the fruits of your labor, but you will also spread joy through the delightful flavors of your homemade marmalade.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab some fresh oranges, roll up your sleeves, and embark on a marmalade-making adventure. Once you taste the homemade goodness, you will never go back to store-bought options again!

This is a black and white paperback edition of Marmalade: A Bittersweet Cookbook, published in hardback in 2014 by Saltyard Books.
If you would like the original colour illustrated version of
MarmaladeFrom the arrival of the first boxes of bitter Seville oranges at the greengrocer's in January, to the sweet-sharp scent of citrus fruit filling the kitchen as the preserving pan bubbles away on the stove, there is something deeply satisfying about the annual ritual of making marmalade and piling the pantry shelves high with neatly labeled jars of glistening preserves.

Once you've perfected the set and balanced the bittersweet flavour in your traditional orange marmalade, you might experiment with different fruits, or try adding alcohol, essences or spices - cardamom, ginger or a hint of bergamot - but after that, what to do with all those pots of citrus perfection? A jar or two to friends and family, another for the breakfast table... and then what? It's time to start using it for baking and cooking.

From Christmas ham to rhubarb and marmalade trifle, and from chocolate fondants with bitter orange centres to marmalade marguerites, here is all the inspiration you need to make the most of marmalade right through the year.
