Carrot Marmalade




I love carrots, and I have a lot of carrot recipes. This includes my carrot cake recipe that I have here but that's not what I'm going to share today though. I'm going to post my carrot marmalade jam recipe.
I had never thought about making a carrot marmalade before until last year when I was trying to find some new jam recipes to make. So well Googling I came across carrot marmalade recipes, I couldn't believe that there is actually a recipe for carrot marmalade. Once I made it and tried it, I couldn't believe how yummy it was. So I would like to pass it along to you and see if you like it just as much as I did.


I don't know about you, but I am having a lot of fun with Judy's choices that she has picked so far. I look forward to next week.







Carrot Marmalade

2 lemon
2 seville oranges
4 cups water
4 cups grated carrots
5 cups sugar
Directions:

1 Wash the lemon and orange and shred them finely.
2 Keep all the seeds from both, and put them in a clean new tea ball, or sew them into a scrap of          
    cheesecloth.
3 Put the canning jars in a large kettle with enough water to come to an inch above the rims.
4 Turn the heat on just after you add the sugar and carrots to the marmalade- jars must be boiled 10 minutes                                                        to be sterilized.
5 Put the lemon and orange shreds and juice in a large, broad pot with the water and the seeds, and boil for                                  ten minutes.
6 Wash, peel and grate the carrots.
7 Add the carrots and sugar to the peels.
8 Continue boiling until the marmalade is thick and forms a sheet when poured from the spoon, about 30          minutes longer.
9 Fish out the seeds, draining them well.
10 Seal the marmalade in sterilized jars and process in boiling water for 5 minute


While Googling I came across this site, did you know there is a Carrot Museum.It is packed full of all kinds of info on our beloved veggie the Carrot

  1. what would you use carrot marmalade with? I love carrots and this may be a way to get my grandson to eat them. Do you use it as a relish or a jelly? It sounds very interesting.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
