Seville Orange Marmalade
I have broken this recipe down into many short steps so that I could include as many photos as possibly - a picture says a thousand words type thing.
The origins of marmalade: The ancient Greeks learned that quinces slowly cooked in honey would set when cooled. The word 'marmalade' first appeared in the English language around 1480. The first shop selling Dundee Marmalade was set up in Dundee, Scotland in 1797. So Seville orange marmalade, similar to what we make today, has been around for over 200 years.
How to Make Seville Orange Marmalade
- Pour all the water into the maslin pan and add the shreds. Pour the fruit juice through a sieve into the maslin pan. Put any bits in the sieve into the muslin with the pips and membrane. Attach the muslin to the pan so that the pips and membrane are under water - as much a possible. Put the maslin an somewhere out of the way and leave overnight or at least 12 hours.
