How To Make Seville Orange Marmalade
‘Tis the season for Seville oranges, so get your preserving pan and Thermapen at the ready to make some fabulous Marmalade! Seville oranges arrive and then disappear from UK shops in the blink of an eye, so you have to be on the look out for these perfect preserving fruits. Seville orange season runs from early January until mid February, so be sure to grab some as soon as you spot them!
Vikki Eames, of fruit farm and Seville importer Chegworth Valley commented:
“Seville is often referred to as the ‘frying pan’ of Spain, and its high temperatures give good sugar content and a concentrated, strong flavour to the oranges”. Seville oranges also have a very high natural level of pectin, which is important when producing marmalades, eliminating the use for artificial additions of pectin such as powders.
