Our Smooth Orange Marmalade, like most marmalades, is a clear sweetened jelly in which pieces of fruit and fruit rind are suspended. The citrus fruit pulp, pips, and peel, when boiled, give a jelly and are the most typical choice of fruit for a marmalade. Historically though the term has often been used for non-citrus preserves. Wickedfood Earth Farm is on the very edge of the Highveld/Bushveld Citrus growing area, with the famous Rex Union oranges being grown less than 50km from us. We source most of our citrus from a farm on the northern slopes of the Witwatersberg Mountains less than 1km from our gate. Here a unique microclimate allows them to grow citrus following strict organic principles. At Wickedfood Earth we use the fruit to make a delicious selection of marmalade, from smooth and clear, like this Smooth Orange Marmalade to fruity and chunky, like our Orange and Lemon Marmalade.
This Smooth Orange Marmalade is also great for:
- Making a sticky marinade – mix with garlic and lemon juice, and rub over the chicken pieces, ribs, or a pork roast, allow to marinate overnight, then roast over coals on a kettle braai, or in an oven at 180°C.
- On toast or scones with good butter;
- Great for baking, fold a few tablespoons into sponge or carrot cake, or mix with dried fruit for fruit cakes, Chelsea buns and raisin loaves.
- Add a half bottle to your favourite rusk recipe, and reduce the sugar by half for the best ever orange flavoured rusks.
