Whisk me away to the highlands Marmalade

Whisk me away to the highlands Marmalade

If you like marmalade and love whisky, this combination is ideal.

We have infused a regular marmalade recipe with a touch of our favourite spirit to celebrate the Commonwealth games being held in Scotland.

Give this a try and enjoy with friends.

What you need

  • ½ a pint of whisky
  • 6 pints of water
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 6 lbs of jam sugar
  • 1 lemon
  • 2.5 lbs of oranges
  • Kilner jam pan
  • Kilner preserving jars

Method

Wash the oranges and lemon and peal half. Remove pips and squeeze juice and flesh into your Kilner jam pan. Add the peal to the pan and simmer gently for 1 and a half hours.

Stir in the jam sugar and heat.

Add the whisky and butter and bring to the boil rapidly for 15 minutes.

Skin any excess with a slotted spoon.

Allow the marmalade to cool and then fill your sterilised Kilner jars.

Enjoy.
