This “Old Fashioned” Orange Marmalade recipe is what happens when you cross orange jam with bourbon and Angostura bitters! It’s a grown-up jam that you can put with meats, cold cuts, and desserts.
- 4 oranges
- 1 grapefruit
- 4 cups of sugar
- 4 cups of water
- 100g of Bourbon
- 4 dashes of Angostura Bitters
- Cut oranges and Grapefruit
- slice them roughly into 1/4 inch thick pieces. Removing the seeds that you find.
- Add 4 cups of sugar to the pot
- Add 4 cups of water. Put a plate in the freezer to test consitency.
- Simmer for 2 hours on medium heat. Stir occasionally to make sure no burnt pieces are sticking to the bottom. 1:45 minutes into the cooking time, check the consistency and stir again. Sometimes it may be ready earlier than 2 hours.
- Take out the plate from the freezer and put a dollop of the marmalade. In a few seconds, it should gel and set.
- Add bourbon and Angostura Bitters
- Add 100g of bourbon, roughly 1/2 cup, and 4-5 dashes of angostura bitters. Stir and simmer again for 1 minute to cook out some of the alcohol.
- Let chill to room temperature
- Turn off the heat and place it in containers to store. Leave uncovered until it gets to room temperature.
If you want a sweeter, more straightforward marmalade, replace the grapefruit with a lemon.
