THE original marmalade – and the only one still being produced in the home of marmalade. In 1797 marmalade as we know it was first produced in Dundee, Scotland.
The story of Dundee Marmalade begins back in the 18th century when a Spanish ship took refuge from a storm, in the harbor at Dundee. On board was a consignment of Seville Oranges which a local grocer decided to purchase. On taking them home to his wife, the couple discovered the oranges were too bitter to eat. The grocer’s wife saw the potential in the oranges and boiled them up with sugar, to create the delicious preserve now known as Dundee Orange Marmalade
