Orange and chia seed marmalade

Wild_and_Good-Homepage_underline

Sticking with the breakfast theme, this rich zingy marmalade is simple to make, free of refined sugar and, yes, positively good for you. Layer it on a piece of dark rye bread and let the sunshine fill your bones.

2 oranges
3 tablespoons of chia seeds
1 – 2 tablespoons of barley malt syrup

Wash the oranges and place them in a pan. Cover them with hot water, bring them to the boil and simmer for 1 ½ hours. Roughly chop and blend them up with the barley malt syrup. Taste for sweetness and adjust if necessary. Add the chia seeds and give the mixture a final pulse. Transfer to a glass jar and leave to stand for at least two hours, by which time the mixture will have thickened and reached a jam like consistency. This will keep in the fridge for up to a week.

    I’ve just made and bottled this liquid sunshine and keep going back to peek at it as it sets. I snook in a taste while it’s still hot – just glorious! My version is made with Mexican oranges and chia seeds, and with honey and a blob of coconut oil, both from the Yucatan peninsula… a native-and-proud version 🙂 Really excited to taste it later on. Thank you as ever for your gorgeous and heartfelt site. It’s such a treat to see what life is bringing you. With love xx
