Marmalade captures the bittersweet tangy brilliance that is citrus & preserve it for later in the year – like summer. This is the lazy version, where you spend a little time on each step & wait days before finishing the batch.
I love using honey in my sweet spreads. Honey adds a mellowness that can’t be found when using sugar alone. Be sure to use a mild flavored honey here as we still want the lemon flavor to shine through.
Oh, this marmalade recipe has stolen my heart. I eat it with cheese, on toast, as a glaze on chicken and roast vegetables. I have mixed it in cocktails & yes, eaten it out of the jar with a spoon. I am warning you. It's amazing. Makes about 3 pints.
As the last of the lemons hang like a hundred little lanterns, we pick them into woven baskets and blend them with lavender flowers to make Lemon-Lavender Marmalade. A colorful, elegant tasting marmalade, this end of summer recipe is sure to delight!
