Marmalade kit

£5.95 / 1.5kg

About

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 foolproof.

We source fragrant Seville oranges from our old friend Amadora Gahona in Seville, who has been growing oranges organically since 1986. Amadora’s soils are high in iron and phosphorus, which alongside the Sevilles’ natural fragrance and pectin levels, bring the unique bittersweet flavour to the oranges and, as Amadora says, results in “winning marmalades”.

This traditional variety is only available for a month or two each year, so stock your cupboard now.

Our marmalade kit contains: 1.5kg finest quality Seville oranges, two lemons, and our tried-and-tested recipe. You’ll need 1.5-2kg sugar, a muslin bag, and 9-11 standard jars (8oz).

How to prepare
