Fill your house with the rich, tangy aroma of simmering marmalade. A perfect antidote to the January blues. No need to have made marmalade before – the recipe we include is pretty fool-proof. Seville oranges are only available for a month or two each year, so stock your cupboard now.

Kit contains: 1.5kg finest quality Seville oranges from Ave Maria farm near Seville, and two lemons. You’ll need 1.5-2kg sugar, a muslin bag and 9-11 standard jars (8oz).

Cooking

The kit includes full cooking instructions. Have a quick look at the video for detailed tips. A great annual ritual to share with the family or friends: careful slicing makes all the difference to the look of the end product, and there is nothing like the bittersweet aroma of simmering marmalade filling the house.

Class

All produce is sold as Class II.

Varieties

We use bitter Seville oranges in our kit, the best variety for a traditional marmalade.

Grower

Guy Watson (Riverford founder) visited Ave Maria Farm near Seville, where Amadora and her two daughters have been growing Seville oranges organically since 1986. Guy reckons you can't get much more organic than their beautiful orchards and is convinced that the resulting bitter-flavoured fruit makes the very best marmalade he has tasted.
