I have a culinary love for marmalade; satisfying to make and it provides opportunities to be creative with flavours. Although it can be made all year round from citrus fruits, the king of marmalades is made from the Seville orange which has a short season, from December to the end of February. Unlike recipes for most jams, marmalades are made with twice the amount of sugar to fruit. Making marmalade involves preparation, overnight soaking of the peel, juice and water, gentle simmering in a covered pan, adding sugar then a fast boil in an uncovered pan, setting and filling the jars.
