Marmalade

Marmalade is a fruit preserve commonly made with citrus fruits, predominantly oranges, creating a sweet yet tangy flavor profile. The key feature distinguishing marmalade from jams and jellies is the inclusion of the fruit's peel, which adds a slight bitterness and unique texture. Marmalade is believed to have originated in Portugal, and its name derives from the Portuguese word "marmelada." Usually consumed as a spread for toast or other baked goods, marmalade works well with a variety of dishes, from breakfast items to snacks and desserts. It is also utilized as an ingredient in glazes and sauces, enhancing the flavor of meats such as poultry and pork with its distinctive citrusy taste.

It can enhance dressings, marinades, or glazes for meats, or give an extra tang in desserts.

Expiration & Storage Tips
When does marmalade expire?
For an unopened jar of commercial marmalade, it stays good for a year to eighteen months if stored in a cool, dark place like pantry. Once opened, keep it refrigerated and it should last for up to a year, depending on the usage. Be sure to always use a clean spoon to scoop out the marmalade to avoid introducing bacteria. If you've made a homemade batch, consume it within two weeks when stored in the refrigerator, or you can freeze it for up to a year.
How do you tell if marmalade is bad?
Signs that marmalade has spoiled include a change in color or texture, an off smell, or if it’s begun to grow mold. Mold is a clear indicator that it's beyond saving and you'll want to discard the jar immediately. In terms of texture changes, if it seems overly watery or excessively clumpy and dry, it is probably past its consumption date.
Tips for storing marmalade to extend shelf life
• Keep unopened marmalade in a cool, dark place like a cupboard or pantry • Once opened, always refrigerate the marmalade • Always use a clean spoon to scoop the marmalade to prevent bacterial growth • Consider moving a smaller quantity to a separate container and refrigerate, leaving the rest of the jar frozen • If making homemade marmalade, make sure jars are sterilized and sealed correctly to prevent spoilage
