5 Unusual Marmalade Recipes

We all know what marmalade is right? A bitter preserve made from juicy oranges boiled down to a sticky spread, perfect for toast. But contrary to popular belief, marmalade can be made with more fruit than just oranges. The term ‘marmalade’ refers to a preserve made using any citrus fruit; different from jam which is made from non-citrus fruit and is generally very sweet instead of more bitter and acidic.

Why not have a go at making one of the unusual marmalade recipes below at home to spice up your breakfast times?

1. Dark Muscovado & Whisky Marmalade

One for the grown ups! It’s a rich, boozy flavoured marmalade that will definitely wake you up in the morning. Instead of just having this marmalade on toast, why not use it as a flavouring in another recipe such as a filling in a cake? You can even add a drop of treacle for an even deeper flavour!

Ingredients:

  • Seville Oranges
  • Lemons
  • White Granulated Sugar
  • Dark Muscovado Sugar
  • Whisky

Find the full recipe at BBC Good Food.

2. Lime Marmalade

This slightly different variation on classic marmalade is great for not only putting on toast – it can also be used as a fantastic marinade in chicken recipes!

Ingredients:

  • Limes
  • Lime Leaves
  • White Granulated Sugar

Find the full recipe at The Telegraph.

3. Grapefruit Marmalade

A tangy spread that would make a great jammy filling for a tropical cake. It could also be a fun way to introduce young children to a new, more interesting fruit as making it into a sweet marmalade is more appealing to young children than a lightly bitter fresh fruit. Once they get a taste for it, they may be more likely to eat the fruit in its original, healthier form!

Ingredients:

  • Grapefruit
  • White Granulated Sugar
  • Lemons

Find the full recipe at Le Parfait.

4. Three Citrus Marmalade

Why have one citrus fruit when you can have three? This marmalade combines orange, lemons and limes for a tasty flavour explosion!

Ingredients:

  • Oranges
  • Lemons
  • Limes
  • White Granulated Sugar

Find the full recipe at Tesco Real Food.

5. Orange & Rhubarb Marmalade

Rhubarb seems to be a criminally underused ingredient in British kitchens, which is a shame as it is delicious when cooked in the right recipes. This recipe adds rhubarb into the traditional orange marmalade recipe, to add an additional sweet element to the preserve and counteract the bitterness of the orange.

Ingredients:

  • Rhubarb
  • White Granulated Sugar
  • Oranges

Find the full recipe at All Recipes.
