Plumcots are at their best in September and just before the month ends, I managed to cook the most delicious homemade marmalade. You still have time to create this easy recipe, with the amazing taste and keep the sweetness of plumcots a little more in your fridge and in your breakfast dishes.
If you want to make the Plumcot Marmalade, You will need:
A kilo of plumcots, without the core.
600 gr. crystal sugar
Juice from one large lemon
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
145 gr. water
* Wash plumcots well and remore its core. Cut them in eight small pieces. Put them in a pot and add the sugar and the water. Stir well and as soon as they start to puff, boil them in medium to slow heat for 7 minutes. While boiling, skim their foam. Turn off the heat and let it rest on in for another 15 minutes. Take out of the heat and let it rest until next day.
The next day, stir well and boil to medium heat for another 20 minutes until the marmalade is homogenised. Keep stiring while boiling. Two to three minutes before the end, add the lemon juice and the vanilla powder.
Fill sterilled jars with your marmalade. If you open a jar, put it on the fridge.
I never win anything. That`s why I was really excited when I heard my name among the winners in the workshop last week.
I chose this beautiful stripped linen from CasaDeLinos and I can say that it is now my new favorite prop, so much, to use it a lot in my future food pictures. They have a large variety of good quality linen clothing, with great style and modern designs.
There were many products in the workshop that I did not know about and found out in the workshop, such as the fantastic breads from Bettysbakery, which are also deliverable at home as a gift, the delicious salads from Buddhashand and the most fabulous cake, which we all tried at the end of the photoshoot, from Bakeland_vlog.
Friends, I just completed the new design of my blog page and I am so happy to share it with you!! Your feedback on the my new “face” is more than welcome, with any suggestions or post ideas that you would like to read on “SaltyBiscotti”. I personally love it and I hope that you prefer it too.
You can also find a new blog series up on the Photography section of the blog, called Photography Tips, discussing all about food photography, tips and inspiration, including all I have learned over the years of practice and studing, hoping to assist you if you are in the same process of learning and creating.
Have a great week and thank you for being here!! Always much appreciated!!
Finally, an “Athens Food Photography and Styling ” workshop!! This may be common abroad, but in Greece, not many events like that happen.
I was so happy when I saw the open invitation on Instagram about a month ago and especially that it was hosted by two very talented food bloggers, Joanne from “theoliveandmango” and Evi from “thehealthycookblog”, so I literally grabbed the opportunity to mark my callendar and attend.
It was so nice meeting other Greek Food Bloggers and discuss about the photography challenges we face, social media, props, cameras, but most of all shooting and experimenting with lighting and food from a number of fantastic sponsors that offered us a large variety of great products.
I hope that we will soon have such an opportunity again.
