Fig and Orange Marmalade. A recipe rewind, because some things are too good to miss!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

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..........

Fig and Orange Marmalade (2 day process)
by the seat of my pants!

2 organic oranges
1 c sugar

Chop the oranges in a food processor until even and about 1/4 inch, empty out into a bowl, stir in the sugar. Cover and let sit overnight.

Next day:

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

Chop figs, again about 1/4 inch.
Combine the 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 the 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 a 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.

  2. I'm not a fig fan but my husband is,,

  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 :)

  4. I've never tried figs in marmalade or jam before, looks good! Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe, Melynda!

  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.
