Marmalade Make & Bake is the sixth book by Vivien Lloyd, author, preserver and competition judge. It leads the reader through the simple processes of making and baking with traditional marmalades using reliable recipes. Beautiful, illustrated recipes will entice the reader to make and bake with marmalade.Many books fail to provide the detailed information needed to get excellent results. Recipes that have been handed down through families or found in older books and then tweaked to include different flavours, frequently disappoint. Often considered as a branch of cookery by the media, domestic preservation is a science. Marmalade recipes that are successful have an ideal balance of fruit, pectin, acid and sugar. They should be brilliant in colour and have a jellified consistency- spreadable but not runny or stiff. Once the citrus fruit has been prepared and cooked down, marmalades are made by quickly boiling the fruit with sugar.With the exception of a large preserving pan, most of the equipment used to make marmalade is used elsewhere in the kitchen. It is an inexpensive and rewarding activity. A collection of gleaming jars of marmalade on a kitchen shelf will generate feelings of pride and satisfaction.Marmalade Make & Bake is intended to provide a definitive guide to making marmalades. Once made, there are many opportunities to use them, especially in cakes, pastries, desserts and biscuits. The section with recipes for baking with marmalades provides inspiration for further experimentation with flavours and recipes.
