Instructions
  1. Peel the oranges. Cut the flesh into 2.5cm (1-inch) cubes. Set aside. Finely chop the peel.
  2. In a saucepan, cover the peel with cold water and bring to a boil. Drain and repeat two more times.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine the orange peel, flesh, juice, sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hour over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the marmalade is translucent. To check for doneness, try the plate test.
  4. Add the lemon juice and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Allow to cool a little then pour the marmalade into jars.
Recipe Notes

Peeling the oranges means that you remove the peel and the thin white membrane (pith) that protects the citrus fruit segments. With a knife, simply cut off both ends of the orange. Place the fruit on one of its flat bases, to remove the peel of citrus fruit flesh, slide the blade of a knife from top to bottom, then remove any excess pith. This technique is called "blanching" the skin, an important step to reduce the bitterness of most citrus. Plate test - Place a small plate in the freezer for 5 minutes. To check the marmalade is at setting point place a spoonful on the plate and put it back in the freezer for a minute. Id=f the marmalade doesn't run you are good to go - if it does confute cooking and check every few minutes.

Instructions
For the coulis: In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the raspberries, sugar, orange juice and vanilla. Cook, stirring frequently, until the raspberries are completely broken down and the sauce is syrupy, 10 minutes. Strain, a little at a time, through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, stirring to separate the seeds. Stir the orange zest in the strained sauce. Serve warm or set aside to cool.
  1. Put the eggs in a large bowl and whisk vigorously until frothy. Whisk in the milk and then add the flour, vanilla and salt, and whisk until combined. Carefully remove the pan from the oven and add the butter, swirling until it is melted and coats the pan. Pour in the batter and immediately return the pan to the oven. Bake until the pancake is puffed and golden brown, 16 to 18 minutes.
For the Dutch Pancake: Preheat the oven to 220c. Put a 25cm cast-iron skillet or oven proof thick based fry pan in the oven to heat for 10 minutes.

Instructions
  1. Combine the dry ingredients (flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, ground ginger, kosher salt, and ground cloves) in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients (milk, buttermilk, pumpkin puree, egg, coconut oil, and vanilla extract) and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir together. Mix until just incorporated - try not to over-stir. It's okay if the batter is lumpy. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet of medium-high heat. Pour approximately 1/2 cup of the batter in the middle of the griddle and twirl pan in a circular motion to get the batter to spread out evenly to approximately a 5 inch circle. No need to add any additional oil to the pan since the batter already has coconut oil.
  5. Cook until bubbles begin to emerge from the center of the pancake and the sides of the pancake change from shiny to dull, approximately 3-6 minutes. Quickly slide a spatula underneath the pancake and flip over. Cook on this side for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. To keep the pancakes warm while finishing up all the batter, you can place the pancakes on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil in the oven at 200 degrees.
  7. Serve hot, with some pure maple syrup.
Recipe Notes

To make pumpkin puree, preheat over to 108c. Cut pumpkin into large wedges and toss in olive oil. Roast on a tray until soft (around 40 minutes). Cool and blitz in a processor until smooth. Freeze any excess, it keeps well.
