Mmmmm - Marmalade

Finally, after phoning at least six other grocery stores in the neighbourhood, I found Seville Oranges in our local supermarket. These bitter oranges are only available in Canada at this time of year, and make the very best marmalade. These probably come from California, not Seville! Lots of prep time required, cutting, slicing, squeezing, boiling, making the whole house smell of oranges.
But the finished product is worth it!

A welcome taste of sunshine in the depths of winter.
Next project is lemon/lime marmalade.... watch this space!

Oh, that looks so good. I'm the only one in my family that likes it. That's alright with me. Its more for my toast.
Your photos really capture the jewel like tones of the marmalade.
Can't wait to see the lemon-lime pics.

No marmelade is like homemade. You got it exactly the way you prefer, and you know in detail (but for the oranges?) what it consists of.

With the pictures here, it looks so fabulous delicate.

I love marmalade....I am so bake/cooking challenged...i just go to the market and choose the brand I want...certainly not good stuff....the colors on the fruit is computer screen touchable!

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. Come over for breakfast, it'll be home-made multigrain bread toasted, just a little scraping of butter or low-cal margerine if you prefer, and a big dollop of marmalade!
