Orange and Fig Marmalade

Recipe rewind, because in the beginning there is a blogger who has no readers. She still posts great food in hopes that the readers will come..........you can also view it here in the archives, Sunday September 20, 2009


Fig and Orange Marmalade (2 day process)

2 organic oranges
1 c sugar
Chop oranges in a food processor until even and about 1/4 inch, empty out into a bowl, stir in the sugar. Cover and let set over night.

Next day:

31/2-4 c whole figs, washed, drained well, cut in half.

 
Chop figs, again about 1/4 inch.
Combine figs and orange mixture, add 2 c sugar, 1/4 c brown sugar and 1/2 t nutmeg, along with the juice of 1 lemon. Bring to a boil, stir, lower heat to simmer and cook covered for 10 minutes. Remove lid, stir well. Continue to cook on low stirring as needed until mixture thickens and begins to hold it's shape. 45-60 minutes. Prepare jars lids and boiling water bath kettle.

Ladle the marmalade into 6 1/2 pt jars, cap and process for 10 minutes.

This is delicious as marmalade on toast. But shines as a starter served with Gorgonzola cheese on crackers or baguette slices.

  1. Glad you posted this again. I have to admit that I've never had a fig other than in a Newton. Can I even get figs here? Do figs grow on trees? If you say the word fig like 10 times, it starts to sound really weird.

  3. That looks yummy! I love homemade jams and jellies. For some reason fresh figs are the one thing I have had the hardest time finding anywhere in my area, they just don't exist :)

  5. OMG, Melynda, this sounds absolutely heavenly. I love marmalade, and never would have thought of using figs in it. I so have to give this a try next autumn when figs are back in season for us. I can imagine it with gorgonzola - sensational.
