Orange marmalade

We have time for one last recipe with oranges, before these citrus disappear until next winter, we will show you our breakfast of the week. Orange marmalade, given its bitter taste is excellent not only with bread, but also to accompany the seasoned cheese.


To prepare the marmalade you have to purchase oranges untreated and un-waxed otherwise you can not use their peel, and you need it to give the right flavor to the recipe.

If you try one of the recipes on the blog, take a photo and publish it on Instragam with the hashtag #fratelliaifornelli and tagging our profile @fratelliaifornelli.
