Rowan Marmalade Recipe
Clusters of orangey-red berries framed by evenly spaced, elegant long-tipped leaves, the rowan tree is a stunner. By the beginning of autumn, it is adorned by these vitamin C rich berries which make hauntingly good marmalade.
Traditionally, marmalade is made from the rind and pulp of citrus fruits. Instead, this recipe uses equal amounts of sweet apples and rowan berries, and the texture and flavour is uncannily like marmalade.
Many people discard these berries as too bitter tasting, though really, they've missed a trick! It's all about marrying the flavour with the right recipe.
If you like marmalade, I'm pretty sure you'll love this recipe. It is easy to make and if you're interested in unusual, wild flavours this is definitely a recipe to try.
Rowan Berry Marmalade
Hauntingly good and uncannily like marmalade; though richer with the dark sugar and the addition of the curious flavour of rowan berries.
Rowan marmalade is also an essential ingredient in my Rowan Marmalade Pudding - thinking sticky toffee pudding, with a wonderful wild twist.
