    My daughter first made this in 2008. We all loved it! Great flavor! I'm going to make it again.

    My elementary school-aged daughter, who doesn't usually like orange marmalade or gingerbread, liked it and asked me to send it in her lunch to school. If covered in plastic wrap will stay moist and fresh for several days.
