One of my favorite ways to preserve citrus is by making boozy concoctions because the alcohol really captures the essence of the citrus fruit flavor. This is similar to Triple Sec, but so much cooler. And there is a cocktail recipe!
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.
In San Diego, loquats are ubiquitous and largely ignored, even when heavy with their delectable, unique fruits. Marmalade making yields its own pectin, and adding loquats softens the texture and reduces the added sugar.
