A spoonful of calamansi marmalade will transport your tastebuds to a tropical island. Calamansi (also known as calamondin) is a citrus fruit that looks like a miniature lime. Inside the thin and fragrant peel, the sunny golden interior bursts with sweet tart flavor like tangerine limeade.
On the Hawaiian island Oahu, Akiko White sources calamansi from nearby farms to make this marmalade based on her husband’s grandmother's (Tutu’s) recipe. It’s bright and super flavorful with a bit of texture from the chopped peel.
Sure, it’s delicious spread on toast or scones, but mixed into a cocktail, poured over goat cheese, or glazed on pork chops? Paradise.
"A citrus stunner that makes a marvelous croissant topper, vinaigrette booster and cocktail brightener."
