My Mum is currently making the following for our shop:

Orange marmalade
Lemon marmalade
Orange and lemon marmalade
Three fruit marmalade
Orange marmalade with ginger
Orange marmalade with Scotch whisky
Pink grapefruit marmalade
Lemon curd
Orange curd

Take your pick!

Marmalade has to have a tang to it; no point buying Seville oranges if it doesn't.  I sometimes make several batches. some with  lemon or ginger, but this year my heart is not in it.  I spent yesterday  afternoon preparing and cooking my remaining oranges and all I got with a miserable four pots.  Next time I will just buy Frank Cooper's excellent stuff.

A French friend of mine once gave me a jar of her home-made French marmalade, which I loved: sweet, with whole and half slices of orange and a rather runny texture. No tang to the taste.

Horrific stuff.

The very notion of spreading the preserve of a citrus fruit on toast is abhorrent.

The abhorrence is multiplied in direct correlation to the amount of rind contained within said preserve.

Truly vile stuff.

Oh.....and I don't like Jaffa Cakes either for the same reason........"Smashing Orangey Bit" my arse.

......Chocolate Oranges don't come out of this well either.
