A delicious, thick, citrus marmalade, fit for royalty...
This recipe was inspired by the wonder of citrus and the fresh new dimension it brings to the over saurated and monotonous use of ‘common’ fruits...
This is a thick, citrus marmalade made with the vibrant rinds of a melange of the best citrus flavours around:
FW Blood Orange is the undisputed King (or Queen in this instance) of citrus. It is the lovechild of ruby red grapefruit and a fresh navel orange and brings that authentic, real orange burst of flavour. The bitter exhale balances this perfectly to secure its rightfull seat at the Queens’ high tea.
FA Grapefruit adds the crisp, bitter and eerily realistic grapefruit flavour, reminiscent of a true, fresh grapefruit. There is very little sweetness present and sits beautifully here to provide that ‘rindy’ feel to the marmalade.
FE Lemon is beast of a lemon and certainly lives up to its praise. This bright, fresh lemon flavour adds the tartness and balances the bitterness from the above citrus fruits. This adds a touch of sweetness, and cuts the bitter notes with a clean, fresh burst of lemon.
FA Tanger Mandarin is the final player here and adds that voluptuous, fresh mandarin flavour to pull the entire party together. The authenticness of a true mandarin is perfectly encapsulated here and brings an overall citrus feel to the mix inludimg sweet, sour and a smidgen of bitterness.
Sweetener is necessary to create the jaminess and flesh the citrus quartet out, just so.
This one is good off the shake and best after 3 to 5 days.
