Today our hero is again a dessert - agar-agar marmalade. Delicious and healthy, it will not only be able to satisfy the appetites of the sweet tooth, but it is also able to give our body benefits, and we will talk about this too, but later. In the meantime, by tradition, we will consider the recipe and find out about who and how invented marmalade, including from agar agar.
The word itself comes from the Portuguese marmelada, which was called quince jam. And its roots go far into the dead language of Latin, where a similar term was called "honey apple" later and gave the name quince. In the future, in different countries, that only was not called marmalade. in Britain under this name they know jam from oranges and only from them, any jam from citrus is so called in France. And if everything is more or less clear with the name, then it is extremely difficult to determine the real homeland of a dish under such a name.
One thing is clear - they have invented something similar to marmalade somewhere in the Middle East. Local residents began to boil the fruits and juice of various local berries and fruits until they thicken, and as a result, they got what we call marmalade today. Later, to speed up the process, such a fruit jelly began to be prepared with the addition of gelatin or agar agar. So we decided to be as natural as possible and offer you homemade marmalade with agar agar, or rather its exact recipe.
With the absolute absence of fat, even those who carefully monitor the figure can afford this tasty treat. By the way, if you wish, sugar can be replaced with stevia, and then the marmalade will become quite suitable even for people with diabetes. In addition, such marmalade can be made from apples or other fruits without adding sweeteners at all, and then it is an absolute healthy lifestyle! It's up to you, but I really liked the option with juice, so I highly recommend it.
