So I think I might have a new obsession: Orange Cardamom Scones + Blood Orange Marmalade + Mascarpone Cheese. Sweet, tart, creamy, flaky, and buttery. Does it get any better than that? Not just for scones, this sunset-hued spread can liven up any slice of buttered toast or cream-cheesed bagel. Typically thought of as a breakfast food, marmalade can actually be used in many other applications. Try spooning a dollop over vanilla ice cream to brighten up your late night dessert. This marmalade can also be shaken into a seasonal cocktail or be used as the base of a fruit vinaigrette.
