In the last few days the temperature has gone from -4°C to 16°C!!
The other day we even had lunch outside. It was beautiful!
Nature is so amazing and in this period you realize how strong it is.
I was absolute sure that I would have lost some of my plants this cold winter,
but both my elderberry cuttings are ok, already bursting with new leaves!
The Lemon and Kumquat plants left outside are dry but still alive.
I love watching hyacinthus, narcisuss and tulips growing, slowly a little more each day.
But before returning back working outside, I would like to share this simply, colorful, tasty and easy recipe.
This marmalade is perfect with Fontina Valdostana cheese or sautè beef.
I haven’t had the chance to try it with anything else, because it is already finished. :-)
It comes from a recently discovered blog “Simply Easy Snacks”
Red onion and Cranberry Marmalade
2 red onions
100gr of dried Cranberries
100gr of sugar
1 tbsp of mustard seeds (brown)
red wine q.b.
extra vergin olive oil
Chop the two red onions.
Heat a small amount of oil in the pot. Add the onions. As the onions are cooking, cover the onions with red wine.
Add the cranberries, the mustard seeds and the sugar
Gently bring to the boil and leave it to simmer.
Cook until the fruit is soft, and the marmalade has thickened.
I let it caramelize a little.
This is my recipe for the WHB this week hosted
