Old recipe books are part of history, and looking through them tells us something of past generations, historic trends and their kitchen methods! I’m privileged to have a few such old recipe books including some hand-written notes which are contained inside. I also have late Great Grandma’s recipe for Three Fruit Marmalade, handwritten out by Grandma.
It’s this recipe used in the Woodcrest Kitchen Three Fruit Marmalade; it was a privilege to make something which had been made in the family by previous generations. Great Grandma’s recipe states that you can either use sweet or Seville oranges in the recipe. I have chosen to use Seville Oranges as they are a particular favourite here! Pink grapefruit, lemon and Seville Orange are combined for a lovely fresh, tangy tasting marmalade.
