Marmalade with a carrot twist
A beautiful easy Carrot Marmalade recipewith a hint of sweetness and a colour burst on anything you use this marmalade on.
Recipe type: Marmalade with a carrot twist
  • 6 medium carrots
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon rind
  • White Sugar
  • 3 bitter oranges
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  1. Scrape and either dice or grate carrots finely
  2. Cook until tender, drain and dry
  3. Chop oranges. I cheated a bit here and actually whizzed them up in the blender. Quarter them into pieces and blend until they go liquid.
  4. Now combine these with the dried carrots. Add rind and juice of lemon.
  5. At this point you will need another bowl and a measuring cup.
  6. Measure and add ⅔ cup sugar for every cup of mixture that you have just mixed in the bowl.
  7. This is the interesting bit. Let this mixture soak overnight. All the juices from the oranges and carrots will combine to give you a liquid and should have dissolved a lot of the sugar. No pectin here!
  8. Last but not least bring your mixture to a rapid boil and cook until clear and like marmalade.
  9. Makes 7- 250ml jars
