This week in FAIL….Apricot-Orange marmalade-y syrup
I was planning to make Apricot-Orange marmalade over the weekend. I had my recipe all ready, I had apricots and oranges…Oh boy the FAIL.
I got Apricot-Orange syrup, not marmalade. It was a sticky, sweet blunder, that included a boil over and marmalade-y syrup all over my stove top. Oy Vey!
So, I did a few things wrong.
- I stepped away from the boiling pot and thus invited the boil over, this was a BIG mistake….that stuff is S T I C K Y!!
- I got distracted while adding the sugar and I’m certain I added too much sugar. (Like 2 cups too much sugar)
- I went pectin free…Yeah, probably should have added pectin.
The syrup tastes great, but it’s no marmalade, it’s not a jam or even a fruit spread…it’s a thick, sweet liquid.
Please enjoy pictures of my Apricot-Orange marmalade-y syrup-y fail.
I’ll be looking for ways to use this syrup. My daughter wants to try it on pancakes.
Is it a true FAIL if I can find ways to use it?
I don’t know, maybe. My daughter says no.
