Amazing Marmalade! Made this for friend as she loves orange marmalade and was surprised at how good it tasted. It was a lot more work that I am used to when making jams and jellies but well worth it. Have had several people ask for a jar. Will be making a double batch over Christmas holiday.

A couple things I think for the picture they must have pureed the peels. It has a very ... awkward taste. It's not exactly bad but it's not exactly good either. It's impossible to describe.I was actually very excited about this recipe when I bought the magazine now I'm kind of eh. It may be because I'm not used to marmalades.

Good. I tried a bit on a spoon. It had an interesting tart flavor.

Thinking I might try this to go in Christmas baskets this year. We have a strawberry farm near here, that will have strawberries in Dec. Thanks!
