Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Proper corned beef

"Zambaglione I presume you mean tinned corned beef, my Saltbeef/Corned beef is good,. "
...................
Yes, sadly, I DO mean tinned.

I had never heard of "proper" corned beef until I worked with an Irish lady who made it regularly. I was very confused when she talked about "making" it until she explained.

Do you start from scratch and salt it yourself? What is your recipe and method? I've salted pork but never beef and wouldn't mind having a go.

Mamade

I wrote to Lakeland earlier in the year, and was delighted to find they now do thick cut and lemon as well as the medium cut, also a strawberry concentrate - but that is really cheating with the glut of strawberries we have this year - 50p a kilo for jamming fruit here in Kent

More mamade

Further to lemon MaMade, I noticed in Lakeland the other day that the brand they stock now comes in lemons and they do a strawbery version for jam which I bought a tin of but haven't tried yet. Watch this space.

Incidentally, if I made my own marmalade from scratch I'd do the initial softening in the pressure cooker, with is basically the same as has happened to the tinned fruit

Good alternative to fresh


I have made the seville orange marmalade from the Home Cook from Lakeland. I didn't boil for the 15 mins it suggested on the tin, but got a set in about 6 mins. It tasted very good and is a good alternative when the sevilles are not in season. They also have prepared lemons and medium and thick cut seville oranges. Personally I would only use when the oranges are not in season, because I enjoy making my marmalade from scratch.

MaMade memories

Fifty-five years ago, when my mother was in and out of hospital, my father was dealing with running the house and he made a mean marmalade using MaMade. As children of 14,12 and 10, living in the rural Highlands, we were always hungry and Marmalade 'pieces' (sandwiches to sassenachs)kept us going until suppertime. I'm really sorry they've discontinued the lemon as my last tin was purchased about a year ago from Tesco. Two tins of thin-cut orange are awaiting their turn in the pantry!

"Granny's Marmalade"

I know this is an old post but was trying to find out where I could get the thick cut Mamade now and happed upon this forum! Looks like Lakeland is the answer ... Lemon 'mamade' too, heavenly.

I blinked and missed the Sevilles this year. Keen to repeat last year's great success using fruit syrup instead of sugar, used the Sweetfreedom brand one, gorgeous and bit healthier.

Chichester lakeland better have both the lemon and orange stuff in stock tomorrow!

thanks for the insight and inspiration :o)

Mamade v Lakeland

Dear Delia, having used Mamade thickcut for many years for making whisky marmalade, and it being no longer available, I've tried Lakeland's version on two occasions and find that it doesn't set well although with the second batch I continued boiling for far longer than recommended (25 mins)and the best I can get is a rather 'loose' set, a problem I never had with Mamade.
I noticed that Lakeland offered, in their catalogue, small bottles of pectin which I may have to purchase to increase the setting consistency.
Could you not 'lean' on Chivers Hartley and try and get them to bring back the 'Thick cut'?

If you want a good thick cut marmalade try Tesco, they do one made by Duerr, which is very good. Their own brand used to be thick and tangy but I think they have discontinued it.

Mamade

I do SO agree. I used to make my own from scratch but as you say, life is too short, I usually make 2 batches at a time, add chopped up preserved ginger to 1 with some of the ginger syrup, and add a good slug of whisky to the other, never have any complaints.
