Fun Facts on Marmalade



  • Marmalade was invented in the late 18th century in Dundee Scotland
  • A man by the name of James Kellier came upon a large shipment of oranges being sold cheaply
  • He bought all of them only later to find out they were too bitter and hard to sell
  • His kind wife decided to try making jam with the oranges and thus invented Marmalade named after the portuguese name for quince paste .
  • Even today you can buy James Kellier and Son Dundee Marmalade. 
  • Marmalade is enjoyed on breakfast tables around the globe with family recipes and many manufacturers 
  • The Orange shop sells many varieties of marmalade for you to enjoy such as temple orange, orange, pineapple and cherry, honeybell and grapefruit. 
  • What will your favorite be?
