Many Ways To Use Marmalade

When I’m teaching a class I’m asked one question quite a bit; how should I use this jar? Well, when it comes to Marmalade there are many ways to use that jar. I know a lot of you are canning away with citrus. So here are a few ideas of what to do with those jars. 

 Marmalade works well when spread on roasted chicken or turkey to create a simple, sweet glaze. I like using my Meyer Lemon Rosemary marmalade for this one. 

 Pork Loin: Instead of using a chutney on your pork try some marmalade. I like using my Red Onion Marmalade for this one. 

Rice and grains can be so boring, so add some  marmalade. It adds a little hint of sweetness and interesting texture. My Orange Marmalade is great for this one.

 

 Wake up the most common vinaigrettes with a dollop of marmalade. I use my Orange Red Wine Marmalade for this.

Use it to dress up an Appetizer Plate.  Crackers, cheese and a good marmalade make for a  delicious appetizer spread. My Ginger Zucchini Marmalade is perfect here.

 

Make a glaze for Salmon. Just add a little soy sauce with the marmalade. I like using my Grapefruit Marmalade. 

If you make  flatbread-type pizzas at home, try marmalade, blue cheese and prosciutto next time. All In A Jar’s Meyer Lemon Cranberry marmalade is excellent for this dish. 

How about a grilled cheese sandwich with brie cheese? My Apricot Marmalade is delicious on these sandwiches.

You can use it to bake with too. I have put it in breads and muffins. The other day I made corn bread muffins with my Meyer Lemon Rosemary Marmalade. I put 1/4 cup marmalade in the muffins and made a glaze for the top of the muffin. They must have been great. I only got one. My husband is the suspect here. 

I bet you didn’t know there were so many different kinds of marmalade.

What’s your favorite way to use marmalade?

See you in class

Chef Mike will transform the Blueberry Rhubarb Jam into glaze and slather it on chicken. He will help us with the roasting of the corn for our salsa. Chef Mike will show us how to plank smoke fish, so it doesn’t fall in the fire. LOL. At the end of class you will sit down for a wonderful meal which you have helped to prepare and a fabulous dessert made with decadent preserves from the All In A Jar pantry. Your meal will include two meats, grilled vegetables, a salad, and dessert will be Apple Pie. Guests will also enjoy Iced Tea, Hot Tea, Coffee and Ice Water. If you would like something else to drink, please feel free to bring it.
