Marmalade
« on: May 20, 2020, 07:15:32 PM »
I really like marmalade, all sorts of different types. Being diabetic, I donít have it daily, but I like it.
So here is the issue: How to make some interesting marmalade schnapps? I have a few bottles of peach schnapps/mampoer whatever that I distilled a coupe of years ago.  I think Iíll just mix the two and apply like a liquor. Ideas?
Any other interesting marmalade recipes? Cake? Rib basting?

We made some Lockdown grapefruit and lemon marmalade out of my late mom-in-law's Good Housekeeping Cookery Compendium, which she got when she started teaching in '56.

It is fantastic. So good, by now I almost have to say: "It was fantastic"

Recipe:
2 grapefruits, 4 lemons, 4 pints water, 3 lb sugar.
Wash fruit and cut in half. Squeeze out juice and strain into a preserving pan. Tie the inside skin and pips in a piece of muslin and put them in the pan with the water and shredded (thinly sliced) peel. Boil until shreds are tender and contents of pan reduced by almost half. Remove muslin bag, add sugar and stir while mixture is coming to the boil. Boil fast for 10 minutes, then test for setting.
Pot and cover as usual.

Indeed. My Mom used to make marmalade. Really nice. A lot of work though.
My marmalade schnapps is, aaahm, original. Got the kick of a bad tempered donkey. I like it!
