Dundee Marmalade

The Scottish city of Dundee has a long association with marmalade. In 1797, James Keiller and his mother Janet ran a small sweet and preserves shop in the Seagate section of Dundee; they opened a factory to produce "Dundee Marmalade", that is marmalade containing thick chunks of Seville orange rind. This recipe (probably invented by his mother) was a new twist on the already well-known fruit preserve of quince marmalade.
