Dundee Marmalade Jar

$39.95

Throughout my life, Dundee Marmalade was a breakfast fixture in my grandparents' house. I was never fond of the bitter taste myself, but my dad enjoyed it until his 94th year. The Scottish legend of Dundee Marmalade has it that a shipment of Seville oranges from Spain foundered in Dundee harbor where some industrious locals made marmalade out of the soon to be spoiled cargo. James Keillor and his wife opened a factory to produce Dundee Marmalade in 1797, and it has been produced ever since. Though I was never a fan of the preserves whose tartness comes from the addition of orange rind, I have always loved the various forms of its antique stoneware crocks. I use them as pencil/pen holders in my mountain house, and also my studio. The crocks shown were made in England during the 1800's.  It measures 4.5" H x 3"and weighs 1/2 LB.
