Orange Marmalade


Although this isn’t the first article I have published this year, it is the first time I have really put finger to keyboard as the previous articles were largely written in 2016. It is therefore the first time I have sat down and really thought about 2017….. not great thoughts I might add, I am not trying to fix all the world’s problems nor indeed my own, just everyday thoughts, thoughts about the season we are in and a few ideas about what I would like to do this year.

Not that I have much time for speculative thinking as the truth is that I am as busy, if not more busy, this year than previous years. I am actually a summer person, a person who likes to feel the warmth of the sun’s rays on his back. I guess that is one of the reasons why I moved from the uplands of northern England to the more sunnier clime of Spain, that and a Spanish girl……

……….. As you will have seen from the recipe, I use standard oranges. In spite of living in Spain I can’t get Seville oranges where I live. In spite of this, the recipe does provide a good, strong, orange flavoured marmalade that will bring your tastebuds back to life first thing in a morning.

  1. Hi&good morning, just being in the way to the office, i have some time to answer. We have 'survived' a weekend with a lot of sweet things and very delicious tarts. Your marmalade looks good, Roland really loves this style and i suppose we will try to do some exercise about it. Indeed we have never cooked any marmalade yet. This evening i am sure to have a bit more time for Mails……many greetings to the family, have a good time, bye ursula


  2. Hello Ursula,

    Thanks for the comments. I love sweet things too, yet this marmalade is a little different. It is sweet of course but has a strong flavour from the peel. Give it a try, I think it is great on a piece of toast of a morning!
