Blue Moon

 

This recipe uses Blue Moon’s Belgian White to the best of its ability, using it to create a tangy, fresh orange marmalade that you’ll eventually spread onto some bread with cheese to create a gooey grilled cheese. 

Directions

Thoroughly wash the oranges. Slice the oranges into 1/8-inch rounds (using a very sharp mandoline makes this very easy). Once sliced, quarter all the rounds and place into a large pot. Add the two bottles of Belgian White, cloves, lemon zest, and lemon juice into the pot, set it over high heat, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to maintain a good simmer and cook for about 40 minutes, stirring frequently, until fruit is very soft. Once this mixture has been reduced, add the sugar and honey and bring back to a boil, stirring frequently. Let this cook down for about 10-15 minutes, until the color of the mixture has darkened a bit. To test to be sure the marmalade is ready, chill a plate in the freezer, then add a teaspoon of the mixture to the plate. After 30 seconds, move the plate around. The mixture should have a gelatinous consistency and not slide around on the plate. Once the marmalade is ready, place into sterile glass mason jars, cool, and seal. Makes roughly 24 ounces. To make the grilled cheese, assemble the slices of cheese, prosciutto, and 1 heaping tablespoon of orange marmalade between the slices of rye bread. Generously butter the outside of bread and place on a hot pan or griddle. Cook each side until crisp, then cut into fourths.
