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.

  • The Orange shop sells many varieties of marmalade for you to enjoy such as temple orange, orange, pineapple and cherry, honeybell and grapefruit.
