Lacto-fermented Orange Marmalade


Today I used my preserved lemons we made came out delicous – we’ve used them in pasta and they are so refreshing, healthy and beautiful. Every time I open the refrigerator they greet me with their sunny countenance. I look forward to adding the jar of sparkling orange marmalade to keep them company.

Nourishing Traditions Marmalade from the book by Sally Fallon

Use 3 organic navel oranges, washed ends cut off, and thinly sliced
Put them in one scalded quart size mason jar (to scald the jar pour boiling water into it and leave it for several minutes)
Pack them down lightly
Mix together 1 Tablespoon sea salt, 1/2 cup filtered water, 1/4 cup whey and 1/4 to 1/2 cup rapadura
Pour into the jar
Add extra filtered water if necessary to cover the top of the oranges
Cover tightly and keep at room temperature for about 3 days

My favorite way to eat orange marmalade is on brown bread with a soft, creamy cheese like havarti or farmer’s cheese.
