I'm not a marmalade fan (much to my husband's dismay), but I loved the idea of using goji berries to add a sweet chutney-like topping to the buckwheat bircher muesli I made for brunch last week. Goji berries are jam packed with antioxidants and full of flavour so I thought I'd give it a go, and SOOOO glad I did. It was SO easy and so tasty (winner!) The other delights I served up included bircher muesli, banana muffins, poached eggs with a twist and chocolate avocado mousse topped with crushed hazelnuts and toasted coconut. All of these are super simple which is exactly what I think food should be!
Goji Berry Marmalade
- 2 unwaxed oranges
- 3 tbsp honey (raw is always best as it hasn't been heated or processed in the same way normal honey has, and if you have raw set honey even better as it will help the marmalade stay thick)
- 80g goji berries
- 3 tbsp chia seeds
- Pinch salt
- Grate the zest of both oranges until you have a tightly packed teaspoon full
- Peel the oranges and put the flesh (with as little of the pith as possible), the zest, honey and salt into a blender or food processor
- Add the goji berries and chia seeds and leave to soak in the mixture for about 20 minutes
- Pulse again until it's all combined but you still have some nice chunks of goji berry in there, and enjoy!
This will keep in the fridge for about a week so serve up any leftovers on some simple oat porridge or a piece of your favourite toast.
Thanks again to HEMSLEY+HEMSLEY for the recipe. I'd highly recommend buying their book 'The Art of Eating Well'. I can't wait to try out more of their fab food!
