Marmalade home made candy | Vegan-Gluten free
Uppdaterat: 16 mars 2021
Hello my lovelies! I have had a busy couple of days making a few changes on my website to keep it more clean as well as reuploading my YouTube videos as I got some very useful feedback about the music being to loud on some of my uploads. So that's corrected! So this week we are returning to the theme of sweets and my inspiration stems from my wonderful friend Ana and my father. Today I will share my recipe on home made vegan marmalade, this treat is dear to me as my father would always have these around for Christmas and as a child I mimicked a lot of my father's behaviour especially when it came to food. To this day my father often sit and socialize with me over food and drinks and it is very dear to me so of course I made enough to bring home to my parents. Love is eternal.
What you need for marmalade:
2 dl ( 0.8 cups ) of fruit juice concentrate (of your choice)
1 tsp agar agar
Icing sugar to coat
Begin with pouring the fruit juice concentrate into a pot and bring it to a boil. Once it boils add the agar agar and bring the heat down to medium high whilst stirring for about 3 minutes then take it off the heat and allow to cool a little bit before pouring into a mould.
I used a smaller square mould but I was intending to use a banana and pineapple moulds but the marmalade ended up getting stuck in the finer shape of the mould hence why I changed to a square one.
If you lack time you can place the mould in the freezer for about 10 minutes or in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour. I used the freezer as I was making 5 different flavours apple, pear, tropical, raspberry and black currant.
Once the marmalade set I gently removed it from the mould and sliced it into cubes.
You can coat them with icing sugar but I tend to do that before serving as the icing sugar makes them less sticky. Place in a container and pop into the fridge.
If you make several flavours simple rinse and repeat.
