This recipe for preserving is easy for beginners to follow, can be made in small quantities and doesn't need any specialised equipment, says our Home Economist Lisa Abbey This savoury marmalade is dark and rich, with a sweet and sour flavour. It uses semi-dried cherries, which you can find in the Waitrose Fruit and Vegetable section. Serve it with hand-carved ham, or dolloped on the side of a plate of griddled chicken breast or pan-fried prime cod fillet.
You'll need a very large pan when you start but the raw onion volume cooks down. If you don't have a big enough preserving pan halve the ingredients.
You can replace the semi-dried cherries with other dried fruits - cranberries work well with leftover turkey or gammon. Or try using juicy Californian raisins to complement roast pork and crackling or creamy goat's cheese.
