Mandarin Lemon Verbena Marmalade with Campari

Sweet Mandarin oranges are cooked down to a gently bitter marmalade, and lemon verbena provides background vocals with its sunny, floral notes. To take this recipe a step further, we've invited Campari to the party, whose cherry blush lends a perfectly gently bite to this unique flavor combination.

This soft, comforting marmalade is like none you've ever had. I prefer to use orange zest for a touch of texture, but feel free to leave it out if you want a smoother preserve.
