Karon Grieve
A deliciously simple preserve perfect on toast but great as a glaze and in Asian cooking too and of course with a cheeseboard.

I got 4 x 200g jars of marmalade from this recipe.
Use this marmalade on toast, with a cheese board, as a glaze on pork or ham/gammon and add to Asian-inspired dishes.
It will keep for up to a year in a cool dark place, once opened store in the fridge and use within a month.
