Tom Kitchin's shallot & parsley marmalade recipe | Waitrose

This savoury marmalade is sharp enough to cut through the richness of the goose perfectly. You can make it in advance, too, adding the butter, parsley and pepper just before serving.

1 tbsp olive oil

12 echalion shallots (about 600g), finely sliced
