Recipe Notes

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 a nice soft bread.
