Seville oranges have arrived in our Farm Shop. To the Tudors, these bitter globes were ‘golden apples’, a luxury to brighten up the winter.
Sevilles are traditionally used to make marmalade and have a very short season so get that pan bubbling away soon. As an alternative they can be used to make an orange liqueur, there is just a bit of a wait before you can drink it (see recipes below).

“Growing up at Doddington, eating seasonal produce from the Kitchen Garden and farm was the only thing I knew. I learnt to cook using what was on hand here as the seasons passed and my love of cooking and good food stems from this. I strongly believe that the fresh, good quality ingredients are the foundation of delicious food.”
