Bottled-up sunshine: Chef Cataldo’s marmalade

We bring the sun of Sorrento right to our breakfast buffet, to have with your first coffee of the day, giving you the good morning you deserve.

 

Alongside a selection of sweet and savoury delicacies, you'll find some tasty orange marmalade: a special gift we like to share with our guests. The fruit come from our citrus grove, but it would be a shame to keep that sweetness just for ourselves.

From the expert hands of our Chef Cataldo these tasty gems become marmalade. Though even that name is too mundane to describe it.

To bring home a taste of our sun, here is the chef's recipe.

Ingredients:

12 oranges 

juice of 2 lemons 

juice of 1 bitter orange 

550g of sugar 

 

Start off by washing the oranges well, cut off the two ends and peel them in alternating strips, with the help of a citrus peeler. Try to leave some of the peel on.

Then divide each orange into 4 and remove all the seeds. Combine all the ingredients in the recipe, bring to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Turn off the heat and lightly froth the mixture with a hand blender.

Your marmalade is ready: pour it into a jar and sterilise it, immersing the container in water for 15 minutes from when it starts to boil.

 

Enjoy your breakfast!
