'marmalade' on Serious Eats

Crostini With Fontina and Tomato Marmalade From 'The Glorious Vegetables of Italy'

The tomato marmalade in Domenica Marchetti's The Glorious Vegetables of Italy, seen here on a crostini with melted fontina, is by far the best I've made this year. It holds in perfect balance the natural sweetness of fresh tomatoes, savoriness of warm spices, and (this is key) tart bitterness of lemon zest. Marchetti includes whole swaths of peel in the preserve, enough that each bite will likely get a refreshing zing from the peel. More

Cara Cara Orange Marmalade

This Cara Cara orange marmalade is all about comfort. Tangy chunks of peel, a whiff of honey, and a hint of spice from my secret ingredient, herbal tea, offset the sweet flesh of the oranges. I used Twinnings Hebal Unwind, but feel free to substitute whatever you have on hand. Try it on English muffins or crumpets. More

Oxtail Marmalade

I bet you thought you'd never utter "oxtail" and "marmalade" in the same breath. It is a sweet dish, sweetened with brown sugar and rich with red wine and red wine vinegar. There is something distinctly jam-like, I'll admit, about spreading the oxtail on toast. More

Meyer Lemon Marmalade

Somewhere between a conventional lemon and a mandarin orange, the Meyer lemon is plump, juicy, and surprisingly sweet. This simple Meyer lemon marmalade showcases the fruit's bold, bright flavor. Try it with blueberry muffins or cornbread. More

Blood Orange Beaujolais Marmalade

This marmalade has a gorgeous, purple-crimson hue. The flavor is a bit sweeter than traditional marmalade, with notes of raspberry and wine. It would be absolutely delicious sandwiched between layers of almond or polenta cake, or try it with cornmeal biscuits. A jar would make a great Valentine's Day gift. More

Grapefruit Marmalade

This grapefruit marmalade embodies everything I love about freshly squeezed juice: the tiny bits of pulp; the citrusy aroma; and the clean, bright flavor. I kept this recipe as simple as possible, but feel free to play with the flavors. Substitute two oranges for one of the grapefruit, or toss half a split vanilla bean into the pot along with the chopped fruit. More

Lemon Ginger Marmalade

Swapping lemons for more traditional oranges in this marmalade results in a spread that is exceptionally tart, zippy, and bursting with citrus flavor. Fresh and crystallized ginger add extra spice and zing. Try it over warm gingerbread or stirred into vanilla ice cream. More
