Marmalade

Marmalade

This popular fruit conserve is often thought of as just made from oranges (traditionally bitter Seville oranges) but in fact a variety of marmalades made from different citrus fruits are available. Look for grapefruit, lemon, lime or tangerine marmalades or a combination of any of these. The texture of marmalade varies depending on how the fruit is cut - choose from fine, medium or coarse cut.

Uses: One of the most popular breakfast conserves, marmalade is traditionally served on toast. It can also be included in cake and pudding recipes. Marmalade is a popular glaze for joints of gammon or ham, often combined with cloves and brown sugar.

To store: Keep in a cool, dark place for up to 1 year.
