The Sevilles have arrived!
And what better way to embrace the short, cold days of January than to spend a few steamy hours in the kitchen creating a little kitchen alchemy and turning a panful of oranges into pots of golden marmalade to last the year ahead.
The Seville orange, celebrated for its bitter tones and pectin rich flesh makes the finest of marmalades.
These bastions of the citrus world are only available for a few short weeks in January and early February. Don’t delay; buy them when you see them.
Whenever I see anyone buying Sevilles I can’t help but feel an affectionate bond with them and wonder what their marmalade is like.
Even if you are a marmalade novice, with ‘The World’s Original Marmalade Awards’ fast approaching (12th and 13th February, 2011) this is the perfect time for you to get out the preserving pan and pot up some winter sunshine.
