carrot orange marmalade

Recipe by

I was inspired by this jam after a visit to Montreal, Quebec. I was given a taste by a vendor at a farmers market, which explained her almost cult following! It is refreshing and can be served on toast, over cream cheese with crackers or with ice cream. I think you will find it just as wonderful as I do. It is simple to make.If you are looking for a new jam or marmalade recipe this is it. Enjoy!
