This is the testimonial of Jennifer Williams, one of the British experts:

“I agree for orange marmalade organic seville oranges always top my marmalade craving. And I noticed that the picking day was on my last box of Ave Maria oranges. Which was only last week. So marvellous really. Can’t get any fresher than that unless you fly over to Spain. Pan on!”.

Marmalade is the amber light that signals the start of the preserving year. As January arrives, so too does the fruit that’s often used in this bittersweet breakfast staple, the Seville orange. The short six-week season of this Spanish citrus, however, means that marmalade makers in Britain can often find them a little hard to come by.
