No, that's not a spelling error, it's the name I choose for this marmalade based on the classic cocktail. Because, at the time, it made me laugh. But no matter what you think of its name, this preserve is sure to win you over. Modelled after the margarita, this lime marmalade is tender, sweet, salty, sour, and a little bit boozy-- a true revelation. But don't take my word for it-- a group of six taking a marmalade workshop ate an entire 500-mL jar during a tasting. It's that good. Electrify your morning toast, use it to glaze a cheesecake, or just eat with a spoon the way most of us do...
Camilla Wynne, Preservation Society founder, has been a pastry professional for a decade. After graduating from pastry school she cut her teeth in some of Montreal's best restaurants, including Les Chevres, Anise, and Laloux, all the while running the pastry half of Backroom Records & Pastries, and touring and recording with rock band Sunset Rubdown. When the band broke up she decided to concentrate on producing her own line of preserves, which had already garnered a following.
Not content to produce garden-variety jams and pickles, Camilla instead favours products that tell a story or illicit a memory and are often, though not intentionally, inspired by cocktails.
Sugar, limes, lime juice, seville orange or grapefruit, tequila, triple sec, salt, citric acid.
