What is Marmalade?

Marmalade is a sweet fruit spread used atop crumpets (English muffins to us), muffins, and toast.  Unlike jams and jellies, it incorporates finely (or not so finely, depending on one’s taste) shredded citrus peel into its sticky goodness.

I love marmalade- anyone who relishes a bitter note would enjoy it.  My favourite flavor is orange, but it can be made of any fruit of  the citrus variety.  My sad and only attempt to make homemade orange marmalade was MANY years ago, in which  I neglected to remove the seeds from the oranges prior to grinding,  rendering it  thusly inedible.  If you are interested in trying your hand at marmalade making,  you may wish to visit this site that I found:
