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 make mine English style, chunky rather than fine slivers like my Heirloom Valencia marmalade. Try it on white or wheat toast. I use it to make my German Lebkuchen cookies!
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 harbour. 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.
