Lemon marmelade

We began last week to publish marmalades, starting with the orange one, today we continue with lemon marmelade with its bitter taste and unforgettable aroma!

To get the best marmelade you need to choose carefully the lemons, first of all must be neither treated nor waxed, then choose them as large and fragrant  as possible 🙂 .

It needs a little patience to prepare the lemon marmelade jam, because lemons need to rest in cold water at least one day to lose a bit of their bitter taste.

If you try one of the recipes on the blog, take a photo and publish it on Instragam with the hashtag #fratelliaifornelli and tagging our profile @fratelliaifornelli.
