We recently ventured into Le Comptoir de Tunisie, a boutique that sells fine-food products from Tunisia, where we purchased a jar of lemon marmalade.
Made in Tebourba by a company called Les Moulins Mahjoub, the marmalade has a caramelized brown color. We would not have imagined that a lemon product of any kind could be so dark! The lemon peel in this confection has been pulverized, yielding a grainy texture. The flavor is tangy, sweet, and sour all at once. Spread on warm Scottish oatcakes, it makes a great breakfast accompaniment!
