Red Pepper and Ginger Marmalade

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Sharon123

Sweet red bell peppers are simmered with garlic, ginger, sugar and orange juice and zest to create a slightly sweet condiment with a bite to it! This is great with grilled chicken or beef, lamb, on a sandwich[try this topped with a fried egg on multi- grain bread], in a potato, or with game. Try to always have some on hand-it's addictive. From The New Basics Cookbook.

Sharon this stuff is addicting, it is so good! I made exactly ad stated only I reduced the fresh ginger to 1/4 cup, my DH is not a real ginger lover and I was worried that it would be too much for him, the 1/4 cup worked out fine though. Thanks for a great recipe, I plan to make again soon!...Kitten:)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Core and seed the peppers, and cut into 1/4" wide lengthwise strips(you should get about 12 cups).
  2. Heat the butter and oil in a heavy flameproof casserole dish. Add garlic and ginger, and cook over low heat for about 3 minutes. Add the peppers, and stir well to coat.
  3. Mix in the orange zest, juice, sugar, and pepper. Stir gently and cover. Cook over medium-low heat,stirring occasionally, until the peppers are wilted and their skins are soft, about 25 minutes.
  4. Remove the cover and keep cooking over low heat, stirring frequently, until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 2 hours.
  5. Serve hot or at room temperature. This keeps, covered tightly, in the fridge for up to 5 days.
