It really is easy, and we had so much fun chatting and laughing in the process, that I hope to make some more before the seville oranges season is over - although there are many other jams and marmalades to try.
We both wondered at the fact that we had not made such a basic and traditional food before - no doubt our grandmothers and great grandmothers made preserved food all the time. It's a shame such skills are used much less than before especially when it is also cost saving and you know exactly what goes in to the jar. Marmalade dates back to the 1700s although preserving goes back to the Romans.
I have to say its the best marmalade I have ever tasted and it was also a fabulous girls night in - lots of laughs!
