The consistency is very jelly-like and not easily spreadable, and there's pieces of orange peel in it which I found very strange. I could have gotten past this, but it was so overly bitter that it was basically inedible. I did try mixing this with some goat cheese at one point and putting it on french toast with a little bit of syrup, but it still wasn't great. Maybe if you mix it with mascarpone to offset the bitterness it might work, but honestly it's probably a better idea to just not buy it.
Orange marmalade traditionally has orange peel in it. Size can vary, though. The Trader Joe’s Seville Orange marmalade is very pungent and bitter! I still don’t mind it, though. The Smucker’s version and other US brands are really sweet.ReplyDelete
There's a reason that seville oranges are used in marmalade. It is because they are BITTER! Orange marmalade is SUPPOSED to be bitter! "Other US brands" suck because they use sweet oranges, They are NOT marmalade but simple orange jams...ReplyDelete
