Did you know…the word marmalade comes from the Portuguese word “marmelos,” which refers to a quince and sugar preserve that is similar to an orange spread. Flavored with honey, red wine , cinnamon stick and powdered ginger, the fruit preserve was taken after a medieval feast together with pears, nuts and sweet meats.
