The original, and some purists say the only, orange marmalade is made from Seville oranges. Fragrant, sour and somewhat bitter, these small fruits impart the classic marmalade taste. The rind has a distinct flavor unlike any other orange with a delightful bite. I offer both course cut and fine cut. For a classic English breakfast apply generously on buttered toast or try it as a crepe filling with mascarpone. I use it to make my German Lebkuchen cookies!
On a side note, this marmalade won a bronze award in The World's Original Marmalade Awards in Cumbria, UK.
Sourced from the UK's 'The Telegraph' news publication, I little back story on how Seville orange marmalade came to be. The story goes that marmalade was invented in 1700, when a storm-damaged Spanish ship, carrying Seville oranges, sought refuge in Dundee harbor. The cargo was sold off cheaply to James Keiller, a down-on-his-luck local merchant, whose wife turned it into a preserve.
INGREDIENTS: Seville oranges, organic sugar, lemon juice.
