A jar of marmalade is always on my pantry shelf or in the refrigerator. Sometimes, I purchase British marmalade. It is more stiff than other brands or has a lower sugar content. There are many uses for orange marmalade.
Two tablespoons of the sauce can be added to beef and pork stir-fry to add freshness. This sweet and tangy ingredient makes cooked carrots special. You can also add marmalade to whipped cream for a dessert topping. This topping is delicious on angel food cake and chocolate cake.
When I was younger and had less to do with caring, I made my own marmalade. I started with canned rind with Sevilla oranges. Next, I followed the instructions on the label. I think homemade jam, jelly and marmalade is the best. I attached bows to the jars, and gave marmalade as a Christmas gift to my family.
Use a commercial product to bake with. Be careful what kind of marmalade is used. Baked goods tend to sink for products with reduced sugar or sugar-free. High-sugar products tend to stay put. What is the difference between jam, jelly, preserves and spread?
Jelly is made from fruit juice, sugar, pectin, and other ingredients. Jam is made from whole or cut fruits, sugar, and pectin. Depending on the recipe, some jams may thicken only with sugar. Preserves are usually made from crushed fruit such as strawberries, fruit syrup and pectin and are thinner than jam. Spread is made from fruit syrup or a combination of syrups and pectin.
Jam can be added to any recipe to add sweetness and flavor. Therefore, the amount of granulated Sugar may need to be decreased. This Sweet Marmalade Biscuits recipe with Orange Glaze may be a good choice. You can either eat the biscuits warm out of the oven or freeze them for later use.
