You know how silly little things make you laugh? Well every January Mum keeps an eye out for Seville Oranges for me- there is a gorgeous proper grocers back home, and although there is a fruit and veg stall in the market here- it is not the same. Well last year she phoned work and left me a message saying ‘I have got Seville Oranges for you’ so I would know to call off the search. Only thing is that the message I got was ‘I have got several oranges for you!’.
So now she looks for several Seville oranges! And she has come up trumps- I have 2kg to play with this year! This means marmalade of course, and my favourite Seville orange ice cream from the Nigella recipe- I think it is in Nigella Bites. I love using seasonal ingredients. There is something so special in knowing that they are here this week, but in a week or two they will be gone. I need to get this months BBC Good Food magazine as that has several (!) marmalade recipes in it, and also Country Kitchen magazine as it has a whole section of ‘other’ recipes using Seville Oranges. (Mmm, citrus Seville salmon!).
