Over the past few months of citrus preserving, food swaps, and gifts from friends, we have amassed what seems like a lifetime supply of marmalade. Inspired to think beyond toast, we are starting to see the potential for marmalade everywhere. From breakfast to dessert and even drinks, here are some other ways to use the sweet and zingy preserves. • Swirl it into oatmeal and yogurt: Using jam to brighten up our morning yogurt or oatmeal is nothing new, but for some reason we only recently tried marmalade – it's fantastic, especially paired with toasted nuts.
• Sip it: Have you ever had a marmalade cocktail? We're intrigued by the Kinloch Plantation Special, a whiskey punch with marmalade and nutmeg. Get the recipe and learn about marmalade mixology at the Atlantic.
