Earthy Delights Recipe

Chipotle Marmalade

Chipotle Marmalade
Here is a wonderful recipe, generously contributed by Marsha Rea, who says her kids love using this as a condiment instead of ketchup.

Not only is its sweet and smokey-spicy flavor great with roasted meats, it can also be used on everything from scrambled eggs to grilled cheese sandwiches!

3 piloncillos (Mexican "loaf" sugar) or 3 cups brown sugar
1 quart cider vinegar
2 heads garlic, peeled
2 large onions, chopped
1 lb dried Chipotle chiles


Cover chipotles with boiling water and soak till soft. Drain. Using kitchen gloves, remove stems & most seeds.

Put pulp & skins into a large pot and add the other ingredients. Cook over medium heat until reduced by half and the mixture is thick and jam-like.


Puree with immersion blender or food processor.


Put in canning jars and process in a water bath.


Store in a dark cool place.


Note: may also be frozen in small quantities.
