The boy drank all her magnolia-wine

Food in Jars is hosting a year-long Mastery Challenge. My mom and I decided to join and work through each challenge together, hoping to expand not only our preserving skills, but also our recipe compendium. Too see all of our projects, click here.


January's Challenge: Marmalade

We made two different marmalades for this challenge; one sweet and one savory. The sweet marmalade is a Honey Whiskey Marmalade and the savory marmalade is a Sweet & Spicy Onion Marmalade.


I'm not a huge fan of classic marmalades. They are just so bitter. I was hoping the honey would help off set the bitterness in the honey whiskey marmalade, but it is still quite bitter. This marmalade tastes exactly like Grand Marnier in my opinion {Reminding me of my waitressing/bartending days}. I'm not a huge fan, one bite was enough for me, but everyone else seemed to enjoy it.


I REALLY like the onion marmalade. It is delicious on crackers or with cheese. It is sweet at first then hits you with a bit of heat at the end. This will definitely go into our recipe rotation.
