Our Chef Becky describes this as a “true marmalade.”
Made from classic tart Seville oranges, this marmalade has a strong, forceful peel balanced by the sweeter, but not-too-sweet, jelly. Seville oranges were originally exported from China, like most citrus fruits, but derive their name from their home in the southern Spain province of Seville.
These oranges have a thicker peel and are cultivated especially for making top-notch marmalade.
At our farm, we have only one Seville orange tree that Farmer Al had planted nearly 15 years ago in the hope of making marmalade from its fruits. Many winters later, the fruits have arrived and we have a limited supply of this marmalade.
“I love the penetrating aftertaste of the orange rind,” says Chef Becky. Since we have only one Seville orange tree, this item has limited availability.

STORAGE & HANDLING
Store in a cool dry place and refrigerate after opening. Proper fridge storage: Store perishables (basically anything without vinegar or spice) in the center of the fridge/main portion and NOT the door. The main portion of the fridge is a consistent temperature, which is the goal. The door changes temperature degrees, sometimes drastically, depending on how often the fridge is opened, how long it stays open, etc.
Marmalades last closer to six months in the fridge with risk of crystal-izing (this doesn't mean they are bad, just difficult to use. Suggest putting the jar in the pot of boiling water for 5-10 minutes. This usually helps liquefy).
If not using immediately, store in a cool, dry place for up to a year for maximum freshness unopened. The shelve life for marmalades is about 3 years.
Shipments may be delayed until the following week based on availability. If you have any requirements for arrival dates, please let us know.
