UW05: marmalade, and book, for hope?


Here's my personal offer for the Menu for Hope raffle in support of the World Food Programme: six jars of Chez Pim artisan marmalade and jam, plus a signed copy of my new book, The Foodie Handbook: the (almost) definitive guide to gastronomy (bid item code UW05).  I'm sure you've heard of the book, but many of you might not know that I also make marmalade and jam.  That's probably because I only make small tiny batches at a time.  I have them up for sale on my Etsy shop about twice a year, and usually sold out a couple days after the shop has been stocked.  Some of them are even sold on futures, that's to say spoken for before they're made! 

UW05 The marmalades are my pride and joy.  They're made from rare, exotic citrus grown
sustainably in the hills of Watsonville, California.  Each small batch
is handmade from a single varietal to preserve its own distinct
qualities, adding only minimally refined organic sugar, and using the
pectin naturally extracted from citrus – because commercial pectin is
only for the timid.  The jams, also my favorites, are made in much the same artisan manners – with heirloom fruits grown in the local area.  No pectin in these either. 

I'm offering a selection of six jars, with marmalades (mostly haven't been made yet) and jams from the summer.  I promise you'll love them. Make yourself some toasts, spread them with good butter and my jam or marmalade, then snuggle up with the book for a cozy Sunday morning in.  

Go ahead and get to the spiffy new donation form to donate and good luck on the raffle!

    What a wonderful contribution! I’m dying to get my hands on some of your marmalade and EVERYONE should have a copy of your book.

    Hi, Pim!
    Love your blog and have been reading it for a long time.
    What recipe/method do you use for making marmalade? I have made blackberry and strawberry jam for years, but have never ventured into marmalade territory. For some reason it’s just really intimidating to me! In any case, if you could share a recipe and/or some tips I would be much, much obliged =)

    Marmalade is a bittersweet preserve made from citrus fruit.  I love toast marmalade.  I too have a ready supply of homemade marmalade.
