Over the years I've made a lot of marmalade batches, to just about call myself an expert. But, expert or not, I still get days, when batch of marmalade just doesn't want to set or the flavour is not quite right. I know that marmalade making can be really puzzling, so here is a list of frequently asked questions:
What fruit can I use for marmalade making?
Any citrus fruit can be used - Seville Oranges, Lemons, Limes, Sweet oranges, Tangerines or Satsumas.
When can I buy seville oranges?
Here in the UK, seville oranges is very short. You can only buy seville oranges in January/February, when they are available in large supermarkets or your local fruit stall. It's worth buying few extra ones and freeze them or make several batches.
500g of seville oranges will make about 5 smaller jam jars, so if you buy few kilos, you have supply for most of the year!
