This is a recipe that I adapted from one found in a Sicilian cookbook. It is best for bitter oranges like Sevilles or blood oranges that can benefit from a process that eliminates some of their bitterness. The four day soak eliminates the bitterness and surprisingly, none of the flavor. More than just a marmalade, it is great as a filling in cakes and cookies.
Seville Orange Marmalade.It put all those store-bought marmalades and canned-fruit marmalades to shame. This orange marmalade, folks, it tasted alive, for lack of a better word. It was so fresh, I could almost faintly pick out orange blossoms and sunshine in my mouth. I'm not even kidding! The flavor was out of this world. Life-changing. Transcendental.
