|~ what do these ingredients have in common? ~|
This is also that time of year when brewing up a batch of marmalade is a perfect way to spend a day inside when the weather outside is gray & drizzly...
This year's batch has fresh pineapple & ginger in it. Well, I always put ginger in my marmalade, but I was curious to see how the pineapple would blend in with the flavors.
I chose to use a larger cut on the citrus peel - last year I used my kitchen veggie chopper & the cut was super-fine. I wanted something a little more substantial.
|~ Moonshine Marmalade - dark & chunky ~|
One of the extra ingredients that I put in right as I was jarring up the marmalade was a bit of locally made Moonshine!! Yup - booze again!
The jars will sit for a month or 2 to allow all the flavors to blend & meld together & then I'll haul out a jar for tasting & experimenting with. One suggestion has already been to use it as a glaze on some pork tenderloin... mmm....
