Seville Orange Marmalade

Thanks to the previous article I managed to buy some Seville oranges this year; tried other years but was always too late.  Not sure whether Seville oranges are still around but I found mine at Batty’s in Lord Street, Gainsborough; they had piles of them.  I was taken a little by surprise when I saw them and hadn’t looked at a recipe so I bought three pounds hoping that would be enough, it was, my recipe required one pound! 

Last year one reason I came second with my Scotch Marmalade was because it wasn’t as evenly cut of the winning jar so this year I decided to mince my oranges.  No one said just how many pips are in one Seville orange.  I thought I’d got them all out but after jarring the marmalade a couple came to the top.  It will be just my luck for our judge to find a pip in my exhibit, if all 15 jars haven’t either been eaten or given away by then.

Below is a pictorial step by step guide to making my jar of Seville Orange Marmalade:
