“In February the bitter Seville Oranges appear in the stores. They are not good to eat, they are used only for marmalade. This is my Grandmother's way of making marmalade. It is imperative to use the bitter, Seville oranges.Using sweet oranges does not make true marmalade but orange jam! I prefer it chunky but many people prefer the fruit cut in fine shreds.”
