Marmalade flavors summer desserts Throughout the years, historians have chronicled the love of sweets shared by peasant and king, child and octagenarian, friend and foe. Today we still spread our toast or English muffins with one of King Henry VIIl's favorite sweeteners, marmalade. In the 16th century, however, the word applied to a conserve made from any type of fruit. While this is still true in many pails of Europe, in the English-speaking countries marmalade is associated solely with oranges. This custom is thought to have originated with Mrs. Janice Keiller of Dundee, the inventor of the modern day bitter orange marmalade ;n 1797. Sweet But Tantalizing If you have an affection for sweet desserts, and would occasionally like to serve something a little different and .sophisticated, try usin.; marmalade and a little imagination. Made by boiling together prepared orange hearts, cut orange peel and refined sugar, marmalade is a natural sweetener with a tart, tantalizing taste that enhances almosi any dessert. Its versatility as a ive'-p' ingredient is apparent from the variety oi recipes below. Especially good for concocting dessert masterpieces is marmalade made from Seville oranges, such as K e i 11 e r ' s Dundee Orange Marmalade.
