“Very unusual tasting. Though it takes four-days to make this marmalade, it's all passive time, and so worth the effort. Roast a chicken with this, spread on bagels, biscuits. Makes a good filling for a layer cake. The finished product has a dark amber color and a slightly "toasty" or burnt flavor. From "Food Down Under," this is a magnificent marmalade.”
