Making Marmalade from Heirloom Oranges

An orange grove was planted here at The Drip in 1880.  Extraordinarily these trees still bear fruit one hundred and thirty years later.

We are not sure what variety these trees are but they are much more sour than modern oranges, with a taste akin to Seville Oranges.  

They therefore make the best marmalade. This is one of our regular end of winter projects, stocking up with a year's supply of our own unique orange marmalade.  For more on The Citrus Grove click here
