recette marmelade citron

Lemon Marmalade

Dear foodies,

What better way to give this back to school a boost than a gourmet and refreshing recipe with lemon

Just tested, I share with you the recipe of:

Lemon Marmalade


.500g lemons, peeled, seeded and cut into pieces

.500g of jam sugar or classic white sugar


Preparation of your Marmalade: 

1/ In a bowl, mix the lemons and sugar.

2/ Put in a saucepan and cook for about twenty minutes over low heat.

Meanwhile, put a small spoon in the refrigerator (it will be used to test the gelling)

After about twenty minutes, take the spoon out of the fridge and dip it in the marmalade. The marmalade is ready if it does not run from the teaspoon. If this is not the case, you can cook again for ten minutes.

3/ When the marmalade is cooked, pour it into the jam jars. Close the jars and turn them upside down to release the air. Wait for the jars to cool down to put them back in place.

Swiss Meringue


À la maison, on adore les Meringues mais surtout quant elles sont fondantes avec une petite note de citron jaune ou citron vert. Voici la Recette des Meringues Suisses.

L’avantage de cette recette, c’est que vous n’avez pas besoin d’attendre plus d’une heure avant de pouvoir croquer dans vos Meringues. En 30 minutes, tout est prêt !


You need: :

.90g de blancs d’oeufs

.90g de sucre en poudre

.90g de sucre glace

.zestes d’un citron jaune ou vert

recette meringue française fondante par amoureuse d'une tarte au citron
n’hésitez pas à jouer avec les formes quand vous poches vos meringues

Préparation de vos Meringues :

1/ Dans la cuve de votre robot, mettre vos blancs d’oeufs avec 1/3 de sucre en poudre et mettre à puissance rapide.

2/ Lorsque votre mélange devient blanc, ajouter le deuxième tiers. Attendre un peu, puis terminer avec le dernier tiers.

3/ Quand votre mélange est bien ferme, ajouter à l’aide d’une maryse votre sucre glace en 3 fois. Mélanger délicatement puis ajouter les zestes de citron.

4/ Former vos meringues sur une feuille de paper sulfurisée ou bien un Silpat.

5/ Mettre dans le four chaud à 160′ pendant 30 minutes environ (tout dépendra de votre four et de la taille de vos meringues). Vos meringues sont cuites quand elles se décollent facilement de votre papier sulfurisé.

6/ Régalez-vous !

Vous pouvez bien entendu ajouter des zestes d’oranges ou bien des arômes et colorants naturels.

Le petit plus gourmandise : tremper légèrement vos meringues dans le chocolat fondu et laisser sécher 🙂
