    mojoloh's Note:

    This sweet and delicious marmalade has a secret that your carrot hating kids will never know unless you tell them. It is a cousin to orange marmalade, using grated carrots instead of orange rind. Try it, you'll love it!

      Wow! I made my own jam and it set up well and tastes wonderful! I halved the recipe and used freezer jam pectin (all I had). Also cooked fresh pears, and so had to add extra water to the mixture in step 3 while boiling, to prevent burning. It made 2 (12 oz) jars that I froze and about 1/2 cup more. I tried it on a bagel and my picky DD liked it. I didn't tell her what was in it!

      Oh my goodness! You need to try this jam, it is amazing! All of my guests that I served it to (I had to show it off!) thought that the "secret" ingredient was apples or something because of the cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon. No one guessed carrots! It is a sweet, flavorful marmalade, very worth a try. I loved it and will definately keep making it! Very interesting, delicious, and nutrious twist!
