Marmalade uses

I was given a large jar of homemade orange marmalade for Christmas. :chops: i have only eaten it on toast or bagel for breakfast, but rarely eat like this these days preferring fruit first thing.

Just looking at the monthly free Co-op food magazine which includes a recipe for beef meatballs with sticky marmalade glaze. Beef is out for me. But...

I've got thinking about marmalade in savoury dishes and different sweet recipes too.

What are your favourites please?

This Nigel Slater Wholemeal Apple and Orange Cake (scroll past the fish pie) is delicious. I was worried that using wholemeal flour would make it heavy, but it doesn't. If you don't want to buy an extra orange just leave the zest out.

I glaze my roast gammon with marmalade.

It also helps to make a marvellous bread & butter pudding.

Marmalade pudding :chops: . DD reminded me recently that I used to make Marmalade Cake a lot (she hates marmalade!). Nigella has a nice recipe for Marmalade Pudding Cake.

I have heard of marmalade used with cheese in a toastier, in place of the usual chutney or pickle

Oh wow, I love all of these suggestions, thank you!

I think the flapjacks really do have to be made very soon! I have most, if not all, of the ingredients in. I also have salmon fillets in the freezer. Yum!

Will let you know how I get on. :hungry:

This one to be made soon too. I have been looking for a cake recipe so I can take something into work when (if) I pass my probation period at work next month. This certainly fits the bill. :tu:

I was brought up on cheese and marmalade sandwiches.
Heavenly.

I like marmalade in savoury cooking, it's one of the ingredients in my favourite chinese marinade & sauce, also with red wine & duck to make a quick sauce for it.
I made a lovely marmalade & dark chocolate bread & butter pudding once too. I think I just used sliced brioche with the usual custard poured over after I'd dolloped a spoonful of marmalade & a few chunks of chocolate between each slice. It was yummy.

Could it be reheated and diluted? I have heard of people doing that before.

I thin it's over cooked. The flavour is a bit toffee ish.

I will have another go. I wish I could have somoene standing next to me when it gets to the testing for setting. I just need someone to point at it and say , yes, it's done, when it's done. It had the conistency of fruit juice when I poured it in the pots. Now it's like (very sticky) cement... :? I do have a sugar thermometer somewhere, I think. Can one simply assume its ready when it reaches the right temperature?

I used to make a very easy marmalade chicken recipe. I must search it out again.

My mother used to offer a small spoonful of bitter marmalade with oily tinned fish like sardines. When they came in olive oil, not the ones in tomato sauce!

I was thinking the same, although I have been known to make B&B pudding with the bread, butter and marmalade ;) ;)

i would bring it back to the boil with some more water (or orange juice) and re-jar it.

Or chop it in to small chunks and add to a fruit cake mix

A WI colleague makes a marmalade fruit cake from a recipe she has had for yonks, it’s good
I think this would be similar, though 2 tbs marmalade doesn’t sound like a lot
