Often at the market people ask me how do I get my inspiration… Walking in the forest with Che is where I dream of new flavours…

Orange, Lemon, Bay Leaves and Orange Flower Water Marmalade
Orange, Lemon, Bay Leaves and Orange Flower Water Marmalade

Like this new marmalade. Thin slices of oranges and lemons  with fresh bay leaves gives a sharp taste and a scant amount of orange flower water add a touch of softness. A bright marmalade for spring mornings.
