recipes for using up mediocre marmalade?
i bought a jar of orange marmalade and it's subpar at best. my request of course goes against the principle of "start with the best ingredients", but i hate the thought of pitching it...any suggestions for how to use it up? i'm looking for vegetarian recipes (savory or sweet are welcomed). thanks in advance!
I make a great glaze for savory dishes by adding grated ginger, minced garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil.
You could brush it on firm tofu after grilling. I like it on chicken.
you could make red-eye gravy for grits. if you're not into ham put a tablespoon of the fat of your choice in a small pan. melt/heat it. add a cup of strong coffee and a dollop of your marmalade and heat through.
sandwich cookies with vanilla wafers?
- to sweeten sorbet, ice cream, or smoothies.
- in a citrus vinaigrette.
- to sweeten homemade fruit jello.
Oh dear! Never buy large of an unknown item! But I guess you figured that out by now, in addition to what others suggested...if you make muffins, half fill the muffin cup, add a good dollop of that stuff and then add more muffin mix.
Honestly I grew up in the restaurant business and priced out alot of costs. It ALWAYS comes out cheaper to chuck a bad purchase like this then to "use it up".
