    Tell me about oranges please...

    Miriam has very kindly started a thread posting a link to my Youtube video showing how to make marmalade. I use Seville oranges, which are imported here from Spain and are seasonal - we can only get them in January and February. Please look at my post on that thread. I would like to know about temple oranges please.

    Whatever you do, don't try my method with ordinary sweet oranges, because it won't work!

    I don't know anything about oranges, and I don't think I have ever had marmalade... sorry.
    I quilt for my sanity!

    We have temple oranges in Florida and I love them. Here is a good link to explain about them.

    I am not affiliated with these groves at all, just like the taste of them.

    You might want to add this important information to the original thread!
    For those that know no different they may go ahead and make the marmalade before seeing this thread.

    Hello QandE2010,

    Thank you, I knew somebody from Florida would help me!

    Temple oranges are sweet, so I would not try to use them as a substitute for Seville oranges - despite the fact that I have a book that suggests they are interchangeable.

    I am going to do a new thread all about oranges...

    Hello QuiltE,

    Am I right in thinking you can get Seville oranges in Canada?

    Williams-Sonoma used to have canned Seville oranges. I use a combination of grapefruit, lemon and orange.

    A friend of mine made marmelade one time. It was veryy good. She just used a recipe out of a Ball canning book. You might look there and see what it says. It was delicious!

    Why wont it work? because of the need for so many seeds it wont set? too sweet? I would really like to make some marmalade. I did see a video that used clemantines, those are plentifull here right now but wont be much longer.

    My mom use to make kumquat marmalade. I wonder if they would work. The fruit is very bitter and the skin is thin and very sweet.

    I have made marmalade and I just used the regular orange from the store....sunkist?? My recipe calls for oranges,lemons and grapefruit and it always turns out nice. I have also used Seville oranges when I can get4 them but to me it doesn't make much of a difference..

    Steady Stiching - yes, you are right. The video gives the amounts for Seville oranges, so if you have a different citrus fruit the proportion of sugar to fruit has to be adjusted. Getting the set all depends on the proportions of sugar, acid and pectin and the right amount of liquid. Why not go ahead and try the clementines recipe? Make the most of the fruit while it is in season!

    Murphy1 - I've been thinking and know what I would try if I had kumquats. Do you want me to PM you? Between us we might work out a decent recipe!

    In the meantime, I am working on grapefruit recipes, and I promise you I will post videos on Youtube so you can have a go. Red grapefruits make a better marmalade than sweet oranges.
