I am watching Iron Chef America and the challenger made "fig marmalata." I have never heard of marmalata, but I assume it is a version of marmalade. Unfortunately, it was not one of the dishes that got good coverage on the show, so I don't know what ingredients went into it--but the finished product looked great and now I want to make it!

After googling my fingers to the bone, I am tired of being told I must mean marmalade even though several restaurant reviews mention this "marmalata" concoction, so I know it exists!

If you know what it is and/or have a recipe, please pass it my way!

  1. Marmallata (double-L) is the Italian word for marmalade, and jam in general, if that helps...

      It's actually marmEllata with an e. Marmellata di fichi is fig marmalade. Here is one recipe (I've never made this):

    2. Not a good time to do fig marmellat, you have to wait August.
