If you are a marmalade wimp like me, this jam will be right up your alley. The small amount of bergamot zest adds a bitter, floral note to this preserve which I admit sounds odd, but if you like earl grey tea you know what I am talking about.
This is a jam that fascinates. Tangy citrus, sweet apples and the tannins of good tea all wrapped up in floral aromas. There is a bonus recipe for Satsuma Marmalade.
A sweet tart rhubarb jam that's been punched in the mouth with three kinds of citrus.
