Today’s recipe Orange Marmalade was my favorite spread on bread with a nice, warm cup of hot chocolate :).

My older sister used to make, bottle, and distribute different flavors back in Ghana when we were growing up.

Although there was an abundance of it, I never got tired of eating my favorite marmalade mixed with butter on warm soft bread.

I could have it for breakfast every day of the week.

However, I can’t do that at this point in my life, I have to watch what I eat.

My favorite bread to use this great spread on is the West African famous Ghana Sugar Bread.

Once you try it let me know how it goes.

The best marmalades can be found at your local Farmer’s Markets or on Amazon.

    This sounds so good! My mom loves orange marmalade. When I was a kid that was the only thing she would put on her toast. I didn’t like it much back then but I love it now. I think I should make this for her for Mother’s day!
