Swimming in marmalade!


 In cleaning out kitchen drawers (an ongoing task), I came across a marmalade recipe my mother typed out for me years ago. She, in turn, told me she had obtained it from my English grandmother. And so, I have been perpetuating family tradition with the fruit from my blood orange tree, and the 4 other citrus varieties making up our “family fruit trees.” When I was growing up in Morocco, my parents planned an annual jaunt to Marrakech so we could gather the Seville oranges that fell from the trees lining the streets. I don’t grow the Seville oranges used for Dundee’s “traditional ” English marmalade, but my American fruit does just fine, thank you. A word to the wise: Two fruit trees of the same variety in one garden is TOO MUCH! I may have to open up a fruit stand at the bottom of our driveway (We give most of it away!) 

I’ll be glad to share my newly refined recipe for marmalade upon request!

    As kismet would have it, just got my hands on a box of sevilles and would appreciate receiving your marmalade recipe.

    Many thanks.

    Debra, the recipe is on its way on your private e-mail. I just made the same recipe with blood oranges: delicious!
    Thanks for the comment,

    Would love to have the recipe for the marmalade. I’m on the waiting list for next week’s cooking adventure at The Arboretum.
