In this version, marmalade is combined with mashed bananas spread on whole wheat bread with a thin layer of butter.
The tangy and slightly bitter flavor of marmalade is complemented by sweet and delicate flavor of bananas.
The popular breakfast fruit also adds a wonderful texture that is pleasant to the bite and tastes like dessert. To make this recipe, you can use a bottle of store-bought marmalade or make a jar of homemade marmalade. Traditional orange marmalade is made with Seville oranges, which are bitter type oranges from Spain. They are not always available, however, and thus regular oranges can be substituted along with one lemon for every pound of orange used.
A simple recipe for 11 cups of marmalade calls for two pounds of oranges, which are cut and seeded. The juice is squeezed out and the ends and membranes of the orange are removed and the remaining oranges peels are cut into thin strips. In a large saucepan, the juice and peels are placed along with the large lemon, which is chopped and tied up in a cheesecloth bag together with the orange ends, membranes and seeds. Nine cups of water are added to the mixture and this is simmered for at least two hours until the peels turn very soft. The lemon bag is then removed after all its juices are squeezed into the pan and nine cups of sugar is added and stirred over low heat until it dissolves completely. The heat is then increased and the mixture is boiled for about 15 to 20 minutes and the scum is skimmed off from the surface.
