Stars from Britain’s best-loved soap share their marvellous marmalade recipes!
To celebrate their 125th birthday, marmalade makers Duerr’s invited the stars of Coronation Street to discover their recipes using the nation’s favourite preserve with the hope of raising funds for Manchester based children’s charity, Manchester Kids.
Susie Blake (Bev) – Cheese on toast with Marmalade
“Marmalade is so versatile and shouldn’t be restricted to the breakfast table! I like to use it as a chutney and my favourite recipe is to spread a thin layer on buttered toast, top with mild cheddar cheese and then place under the grill until the cheese melts and bubbles – a delicious snack.”
Jennie McAlpine (Fiz) – Marmalade & Ginger Chicken
“I love marmalade, its brilliant to spice up boring food! I like to make a marmalade marinade using thick cut preserve and adding freshly grated ginger. You can then spread over chicken breasts as thick as you like and then wrap in foil and pop in the oven for 20-25 mins – looks dead posh, but in fact is so easy to do.”
Richard Fleeshman (Craig) – Marmalade on crumpet
“Marmalade is the ultimate comfort food to me, I enjoy spreading it thickly on a buttered crumpet instead of toast, washed down with a brew, this is the perfect way to start the day.”
Helen Flannigan (Rosie) – Marmalade & Honey Porridge
“Porridge is really good for you and keeps me going until lunch, but it’s boring! Just add a generous dollop of honey and marmalade and mix in for gorgeous breakfast treat.”
Samia Smith (Maria) – Chocolate Orange Bananas
“I love shredless marmalade on toast, but for something a bit different smothering bananas with shredless marmalade, sprinkle on some brown sugar, wrap in tin foil and either place in the oven or BBQ for a few minutes. Once cooked place in a bowl and add vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce – amazing!
Julia Howarth (Claire) – Citrus Roast Lamb
“I love the combination of bitter sweet you get with marmalade, my favourite recipe is Citrus Roast Lamb. All you need to do is take a normal joint of Lamb and instead of covering with mint or rosemary, cover with a thick layer of marmalade and freshly grated lemon zest. Cook the joint as normal, but a totally unique flavour with a crispy zesty topping.”
Alan Halsall (Tyrone) – Marmalade Pizza
“It may sound strange but marmalade on pizza is top! I discovered it by accident when my cupboards were bare, one of the only ingredients I has was marmalade. I use ready-made bases and spread with marmalade thickly on top, then get creative! I usually add ham, pineapple chunks and then top with mozzarella cheese.”
Vicky Binns (Molly) – Wensleydale and Marmalade Wrap
“I love the tangy flavour of marmalade, I find it goes perfectly with cheese. My favourite recipe is so easy to make, take one soft tortilla warp and spread a thick layer of fine cut marmalade all over. Then crumble some mild Wensleydale cheese on top, cherry tomatoes and rocket and then role up into a wrap – perfect for a quick bite!”
For every jar of Duerr’s marmalade sold in September Duerr’s will donate 1p to Manchester Kids with a minimum donation of £5000.00.
