When my mother last visited she raved about some marmalade she had scored, we said it would be interesting to try some so were very pleased when she posted us a jar.
The ingredients list for it are impressively brief: Seville oranges, sugar and lemon. The oranges come from the Upper Alentejo in Portugal, and we are assured by the label that this is a privileged micro-climate for them.
Its colour is quite dark and it is rich with large lumps of peel. The taste is quite intense, super candied-orange action. Certainly bitter, but in a very pleasing manner. Pretty sweet, too. It is more like orangettes than any marmalade I have ever had. Quite delicious.
£4.50 well spent. Thanks Linda!
