I will be sharing some of my favorite new "finds". Sure, they may not be brand new; they may have been around the block before. But not my block - they are new to me!
I have always chosen jam/preserves or jelly for my toast; rarely have I ever opted for a marmalade. Until now, orange marmalade has been the only variety I have ever tried. How have I lived?!? If you like lime, then try and find a jar of this...seriously, it's that good!
It definitely has a less overpowering sweetness compared to most other jellies/jams/preserves. Compared to a jar of raspberry preserves that I have, this marmalade has about 20 less calories, and 2.5 grams less of carbs ~ based on a serving size of 1 TBS (15ml). It's still sweet, but the contrasting sourness from the tangy lime is astounding! Perhaps that's from the peel being incorporated into the marmalade, for that's what makes a marmalade a marmalade: a preserve made from the fruit and peel of citrus fruits, boiled in sugar and water.
I found this jar at "Brits" a British import store in Edmonton, AB (remember this post?). I hoarded it away in hopes to make cookies or bars with it......that didn't happen. Why, you ask? Well, the old man tore it open, like a savage, tasted it with a spoon, rolled his eyes into the back of head for a few seconds, then came-to proclaiming "this is the best s&*% in a jar I've ever had!" There was no going back after that.
As you can see, the jar is almost gone. If I don't find another jar soon, our tea and crumpets just won't be the same. I have actually seen it available in some grocery stores here in Canada; I know that in the USA, Rose's lime juice and grenadine is available, but I'm not certain if the marmalade is also. Let me know if you find it!!
