This blog should have been written up in January, but it wasn't! January is peak time for Seville oranges which are used in making marmalade. This year I had a couple of major disasters. The first recipe I used which was a relatives recipe which refused to set and then I boiled it again and it turned to toffee. The next recipe is one I used last year and I let it boil before the sugar had dissolved properly so it was grainy and horrible and was like glue. So on my next attempt I took parts from three different recipes and am delighted to say I got a fantastic result, great texture etc. There are loads of marmalade recipes out there, so I'm sure you all have a favourite. I purchased my oranges from our local Blairgowrie Farm Shop.
Dundee and was made originally by a company called Keiller. I have a wee confession to make - I'm not very keen on marmalade - don't know why, but I had to taste test my own and have to say it's not bad.
