Seville season is so short, December to February, but now that your mincemeat jars are empty you might as well fill them up with Marmalade!
The Seville orange season is short and is over before you realize it. The season runs from December to February. I love using the Seville oranges for making marmalade, as they are extra bitter and somewhat uncomplicated but sophisticated at the same time. I was so very excited when I saw these beauties in the vegetable shop!
Seville oranges also freeze well, so if you buy some but do not get the chance to make the marmalade immediately, I suggest freeze them whole. Defrost them completely before turning them into a delicious marmalade.
