This is for those whose orange marmalade did not achieve a set like that in this picture of perfection…
(image courtesy of www.taylorsphotosafaris.co.uk)…
for whatever reason… and there are enough experts out there who can tell you how to have a second go at getting a set (re-boil, add more lemon juice and re-boil, etc)…
I am here to tell you what you can do with those jars of orange-flavoured syrup with the tasty chunks of citrus:
Do not chuck them out, whatever you do!
Orange marmalade that did not set is a blessing in disguise and the secret ingredient for:
– a delicious braised red cabbage with a classy touch
– slow-roasted rhubarb – a really delicious treat and if you need a recipe to guide you here it is:
Orange Roasted Rhubarb
Prep. Time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: approx. 1 hour
Fresh rhubarb, rinsed and sliced into bite-sized chunks 500g
Orange marmalade, preferably homemade 250g
- Preheat the oven to 140°C.
- Combine the rhubarb with the marmalade in a bowl and mix well so that the rhubarb chunks are well-covered in marmalade.
- Tip into a baking dish, cover with foil and slow roast in the oven until the rhubarb is nice and tender – about 1 hour.
- Remove from the oven and serve hot as is or accompanied by a dollop of crème fraîche or a scoop of ice cream
P.S. and of course you can make this even if your marmalade did set 🙂
