Grapefruit Marmalade: Begin a Year of Pantry Essentials


| 1/24/2017 3:29:00 PM



 

In her beautiful book Ma Cuisine en Provence (My Kitchen in Provence), Patricia Wells says, roughly translated, it’s impossible to keep a country kitchen without a pantry of homemade basics such as stocks, preserves, and spices.

In my previous posts, you can find many of these basics that add nutrition, interest, and flavor to everyday meal prep. Please go here, where you can search by date for recipes for each month and season.

We’ll begin this year with more pantry essentials, going month by month. A little spiral-bound notebook helps keep track of your projects and the recipes you use year after year. I keep two basic “pantries”, one in a cupboard for canned or dry preparations and one in the freezer for perishables.



For a first project, let’s start with some citrus marmalades, taking advantage of all the beautiful fruits coming into markets or, if you live in a warm climate, maybe even on the trees in your own backyard. Trips to local upscale organic markets can get you some exciting finds.
