Seville Oranges

I do most of my produce shopping at the farmers market but popped into a supermarket last week and was sidetracked by a display of gnarly-looking and highly aromatic Seville oranges. I am a sucker for gnarled produce. It has character.

I bought six. And so began an epic, hair pulling journey into the dark heart of marmalade making, which I will outline here tomorrow.

On the plus side, these made my kitchen smell like heaven.

  1. I remember eating oranges that looked like that as a child. Oranges in general played a great role in my childhood. Most people don’t know that you can make a delicious infusion with the blooms.
    Also, if you eat the leaves, they kill your hunger in a hurry. I wonder why no one has ever marketed that! Look forward to the post about the marmalade.
