Ginger Orange Marmalade

Smells and tastes have a very strong power to evoke memories of an event or place. In these days of India nostalgia I made an orange marmalade we tasted for the first time quite exactly a year ago.

I’m glad to say that I found the right dose for the additional ingredients so that they don’t overpower the taste of the oranges, but support it nicely in the background.

I like my marmalade to have a chunky texture, so I very slightly blended the mixture to make it come together, but kept the orange peel pieces as they were. Cinnamon and vanilla are optional flavors, but I’d definitely recommend adding at least the ginger as it gives a slight tanginess to the marmalade that cuts the sweetness and enriches the aftertaste.
