Method

Marmalades are a mixture of fruits that have been reduced to a paste of such consistency that they may be preserved. Ripe fruits, which cannot bear the process of blanching required in preserving whole fruits, are used for this purpose. The beauty and taste of a Marmalade will depend on the fruits that are used and the quality of sugar, as also the care bestowed on the preparation. The Creoles, like their French ancestors, are noted for their delightful preparations of Marmalades.
