Amanatsu & Iyokan Marmalade, 7.76 oz
Made only with “amanatsu” (a grapefruit-like citrus developed in Japan), “iyokan” (a Mandarin orange-like citrus developed in Japan), and cane sugar, Muchacha-en’s Amanatsu & Iyokan Marmalade brings a wonderfully refreshing kick to your table. Both citrus varieties are grown in Ehime Prefecture, which is known for citrus production. Muchacha-en slowly simmers iyokan juice, which boasts an elegant aroma and well-balanced sweetness and sourness, together with the rind and pulp of amanatsu, which brings a refreshing sourness and a touch of bitterness, along with cane sugar. They use a reduced amount of sugar compared to regular marmalade. By simmering for an extended time the natural sweetness of the fruits can be enhanced. No additives are used to boost the setting, so the thickness of the marmalade naturally comes from pectin contained in the amanatsu and iyokan. The light taste of this marmalade effectively highlights the beautiful flavor of amanatsu and iyokan. You can enjoy it just like any other marmalade or fruit jam, served with bread, yogurt, or ice cream. Also, it can be incorporated into cooking, such as simmering meats or baking cakes.
Amanatsu & Iyokan Marmalade’s light, refreshing taste goes beautifully with bread, scones, and any other baked dishes. It can accompany cold desserts like yogurt, ice cream, panna cotta, and jelly. You can also use it for cooking, for example, adding the marmalade into a marinade for spareribs or chicken wings or adding it to simmering meats. You can mix it into batter for cakes or cookies as well. Dropping a spoonful of the marmalade into hot black tea makes your teatime more flavorful. And of course, you are free to add it to your cocktails or mocktails to appreciate the unique citrus flavors of Ehime!
