Ginger & lemon marmalade
8 lemons (pulp and peel)
100 grams of ginger
600 grams of jam sugar
1 dl cane sugar
2 dl Water
Peel the ginger and cut it fine or run it through a mini chopper. Grate the peel of the 8 lemons – avoid the white peel. Cut the pulp into small pieces. Get a saucepan and add the ginger, lemon peel, lemon and water and bring to the boil. Then add the jam sugar and cane sugar while stirring. Let it cook for about 5-10 minutes, and remember to test the consistency. There are many ways to do this. You can dip a wooden spoon in the hot jam – if the last drop is sticking to the spoon, the marmalade is done. You can also make a wrinkle test – set a few small dishes in the refrigerator, take one out, place a tablespoon of the marmalade on the plate, place it back in the refrigerator a few minutes, then take it out and drag a finger through the marmalade – if it wrinkles it is done.
