How to make Titziana’s Bell Pepper Marmalade

  • The peppers are best if they’re quite mature. They need to be de-skinned and cleaned. To do this put them in a high oven (230°C / 450F°) for ten minutes.
  • Then put them in a plastic container or freezer bag. Seal and wait 10 more minutes. Then it will be easy to peel off skins and remove seeds.
  • If you have a passatutto use this to crush the peppers. If not mash with a fork or lightly in a blender.
  • Put the mashed peppers in a saucepan with the vinegar and sugar and cook on a low heat for 15 minutes. Add the chili pepper at this stage too.
  • Once cooked add the teaspoon of other marmalade and mix well.
  • The warm mix can now be put into jars and sealed.
  • To ensure preservation boil the filled/sealed jars for ten minutes in a pan and then leave to cool.

This marmalade is wonderful with Pecorino cheese!
