Poor Folk Cuisine: Marmalade

2010-01-11 18:40:15 by Auzel

I live by the motto that poor mother not lovers, because if they loved you they would be there making you a sandwich, should have something nice to eat. So using the meager ingredients that I find/borrow, I will teach you how to make yummy stuff to astound your starving peers.

On today's menu: Marmalade

Marmalade is like bitter jam. It's a mixture of flavors to offset that normal sugar rush you're on. Depending on the type of oranges you use it ranges from a sour-bitter- sweet taste to tangy. Despite the thought that bitter and sour are bad, it actually does taste very good. As well it changes up things. And change is good, or at least that's what the Tele has been saying.

Orange(s) : As many or as few as you have
Sugar : It should be about the same proportions as the oranges you have. So if you have a 1/2 cup worth of orange you need 1/2 cup of sugar.
Optional: Lemons (But only if you're feeling crazy)

Tip: Sugar is like the friendship ingredient. Everyone has it but no one really uses it other then for coffee. Since your neighbors are just dying for you to take some, pop by next door and "borrow" some. It also helps to lay the foundation of your friendship, that you'll be in the future the needy dominant one, that takes.

READ ALL THE INSTRUCTION BEFORE YOU START... or at least allude to that fact you did.

Step one: Peel orange, if there is that white stuff underneath it try and get as much of it off as you can.
Step two: Put water in a pot and boil the orange peel, until it's as soft as a viagraless... just boil it until you can poke through it easily.
Step three: While the orange peel is boiling, remove all seeds from the orange and blend it up. If you don't have a blender get a fork and mash it up. If you don't have a fork, use your hands, etc. etc.
Step four: Take the orange peels out of the water, and slice them up into little bits.
Step five: Drain the water from the pot and then put the orange pulp, orange juice, and orange peel back in the pot, add the sugar, try to make it equal parts sugar and orange stuff. Mix it so it's well blended.
Extra: If you have lemons you can add some juice, pulp, and a bit of the skin.
Step six: On low heat boil the mixture between 30 minutes to an hour, add time if you're making a big batch. I've been told that you should boil it till it becomes clear, but I find that it never really becomes clear, but more a less murky less bubbly concoction. I would suggest just watching it until it gets this sort of thickness to it, or when ever you simply get tired of cooking.
Step seven: Put it in a container and pop it in the fridge. Take out and spread on toast when hungry.
