In a recent Bountiful Basket order,
we received a bag of Seville oranges,
which it turns out,
are sour and seedy
and not good to just eat.
They are, however,
excellent for making orange marmalade
due to the high pectin content in their many seeds
and the usual high sugar content in the marmalade.
I don't particularly like orange marmalade,
but it's a great favorite with my mum and my Little Man.
So I set out on a work of love: making orange marmalade for them.
I used a clear and helpful recipe I found online
and experienced lovely results.
(I've never made jam without a box of pectin before!)
I even ate a little of it,
though most of it has been reserved
for the true orange marmalade fans.
