Spiced Clementine Marmalade

Its almost going to be spring season here, obviously citrus fruits like oranges, celementines or manadrins have to leave their place in fruit stalls for spring seasonal fruits and vegetables. What you will do if you have sour clementines at home, actually the last batch of clementines i bought before the season ends turned out super sour.Obviously we dont even want to touch them. Since i dont want to trash them , i cant think anything rather than making some marmalade with those clementines. Needless to say anything sour when cooked with sugar will definitely become sweet na, hence this spiced marmalade. Actually i used cinnamon stick to spice this ultimate marmalade, and trust me this marmalade is a super easy recipe. Yes a simple cooking process, if you love citrus marmalade, am sure you will definitely love this fantastic marmalade.

Easy Spiced Clementine marmalade

Do you know you can use this marmalade in baking and cooking like baking cake, cookes with this preserve or else simply use as spread for your breakfast, you can use this marmalade for marinating meats as well. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Sauces and Preserves as theme. After a fantastic Japanese Teriyaki sauce and a lipsmacking Ginger, garlic & green chilly pickle, i couldnt resist to prepare this ultimate marmalade. As like every preserves, if conserved properly this spiced marmalade stays prefect for more than a month.

Clementine marmalade

7-8 Clementines
2cups Packed brown sugar (depending upon of how sweet you like)
1tbsp lemon juice (freshly squeeze)
2nos Cinnamon stick

Wash the clementines, slice the clementine thinly and chop them roughly.

In a heavy bottomed pan, take the chopped clementine and add the sugar,cinnamon stick, and lemon juice and let it boil.

When boiling, turn the heat to low and let it simmer for an hour, uncover.  Keep stirring once in a while.

Let it cool completely. Discard the cinnamon stick.

The marmalade will thicken when cool.

Keep in fridge and enjoy for your breakfast.
