Honeyed Marmalade Steel Cut Oatmeal


Has spring arrived in your town already? Is spring embracing you with its warmth and colors?

Here things are pretty green all year long, I must say, but also rather wet and dull in the winter so it is just great to be finally able to soak up the sun. Some sun.


Speaking of spring, what fresh ingredients is this lovely season bringing to you? I must admit I have no idea of what is in season now.

I surely know oranges belong to the winter. Maybe, as a food blogger, I should not admit my ignorance so openly. I have an excuse though: the lack of local markets in the city where I just moved in, makes it impossible to keep track of seasonal foods. There is so much land and green around me but no farmers to offer their fresh produce. Meh.


So off I go to Sainsbury’s where almost everything is perpetually in season. Reminiscent of my recent holiday in Spain where I tasted the most delicious orange ever, I bought a Hartleys Orange Ma Made Thin Cut Homemade marmalade, which contains Seville Bitter Oranges (75%), Water, Citric Acid and Pectin.

Citric acid is used to prevent bacterial colonization of foods and sometimes as a flavoring agent, Pectin is a thickening agent that also occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables. While citric acid is neither good or bad for you, pectin provides a soluble dietary fiber that can be beneficial. For all this reasons I decided to give this sugar-free product a go and made a marmalade according to my sweet tooth needs.  It’s my first honeyed marmalade in my new super cute Denby breakfast bowl :).


I am cherishing the idea of riding a bicycle, hence burning fat rather than oil (I already ordered a mountain bike on Amazon). I am not sure how far my two wheels will take me, hopefully far enough to discover markets :).

Are you a bicycle lover? I could definitely use some beginner riding tips!

Honeyed Marmalade Oatmeal


  • 6 Tbsp Hartleys Orange Mamade Thin Cut Orange Marmalade Mix
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cups steel cut oats
  • 3 cups soy milk
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 raspberry


  1. Pour the Ma Made marmalade mix in a pot, add the water and cook until it jells (about 20 minutes). Cool down for at least half an hour. Add the honey, stir well and set aside.
  2. Prepare the oatmeal by cooking the oats on the stove with soy milk. Add cinnamon and cook for about 10 minutes or so, until you get the desired consistency.
  3. Remove it from the heat and stir in a tablespoon of marmalade. Pour the oatmeal into bowl and topped it off the remaining marmalade and your favorite fresh fruit.

      Thanks Sarah! I have been wanting to redesign my blog for a while now. I was ready to pay a good amount of money to get it done by experts but I realized I had to wait months just to get an answer! So I looked up online and found a website offering templates for a few bucks 🙂

    Pretty pictures lady! It’s funny, I feel like in most of the U.S., people don’t know what’s in season due to every type of produce being imported nearly year round. I partly know what’s in season because I love popping into farmers markets around here, and there are many in SoCal! I just bought this big carton of strawberries from a little stand nearby last weekend, and they are so sweet and yummy.
