    Meyer Lemon Marmalade

    A simple recipe that offers a unique flavor sensation.

    You will need:

    Meyer Lemons – quantity depends on how many lemons you have purchased use the complete fruit however zest the fruit first for the Meyer Lemon Panna Cotta recipe.
    Sugar – quantity depends on how many lemons are being used but the ration should be at least three to one (lemon to sugar)
    Water – just enough to come half way up the volume of the lemons.

    In a sauce pot large enough to hold all of the ingredients bring up to a simmer, cover and cook until the lemons are translucent. At this stage taste the marmalade to adjust the sugar. You can also add a little salt to brighten.

    Herb/Olive Spread

    This is my rendition of the ever-popular Olive salad used by many when preparing a Muffuletta Sandwich. I think you will like this spread and use it for any sandwich you decide to build. The recipe below will give you enough to cover a 9″ Focaccia round or one 6 x 12″ Ciabatta loaf.

    You will Need:
    Pimento Stuffed Olives – 3/4 cup
    Pitted Black Olives – 1/4 cup
    Capers – approximately 2 TBSP
    Fresh Garlic – 1 or 2 cloves
    Fresh Basil – 1 ounce
    Fresh Mint – 1 ounce
    Orange Zest – approximately 1/2 TBSP
    Lemon Zest – approximately 1/2 TBSP
    Extra Virgin Olive Oil – use the good stuff here – approximately 3 TBSP
    Balsamic Vinegar – 1 tsp

    In a food processor place basil and mint in a food processor and chop to a fine past. Add both zests, garlic and half the olive oil, vinegar and process until garlic gloves are incorporated. Add both olives and capers and pulse until the olives are approximately 1/8″ dice. You might need to add some of the balance of the olive oil if the product gets too dry. This is a visual step depending on how much liquid is exuded from the olives and capers. You can make this ahead and store in the refrigerator, bring to room temperature before use.
