Aubergine and lemon Marmalade

R45.00

Did you know that the word “marmalade” is borrowed from the Portuguese marmelada, made for quince and sugar or honey. Today it is mainly made from various citrus varieties and often combined with other fruit or vegetables such as tomato, pumpkin or aubergine. At Wickedfood Earth we make two varieties, one with pumpkin, and this one with aubergine. This unusual recipe originates from the Middle East and makes a surprisingly fragrant sweet/sour preserve with a slight bitterness at the end. Traditionally, it is eaten by the spoonful with steaming hot tea or coffee and a glass of water. As the aubergine is capable of absorbing flavours, it can be transformed into a delicious and versatile sweetmeat. We love it as a condiment with cheese platters, cured cold meats and salads or on bread with cheese for breakfast.
