Rum and whisky Seville Orange Marmalade

Rum and whisky Seville Orange Marmalade

The end of January in the u.k. heralds marmalade season, the shops for a short period are abundant with boxes of bright and cheery seville oranges and to add a bit of a kick to the marmalade you might try adding a shot of rum or whisky to the mix during the ten minute resting period after the boil. I love making these little jars of joy and they make a great addition to homemade gift baskets, the extra rum or whisky just give the baskets a little touch of something special.P1080592
