A sister in law has sent us several fresh Hassaku. It is a kind of orange with thick skin and sour sweet taste. She has its tree in the garden. She doesn't like its sour taste and always throw away fruits into farms there, as she says. My wife has asked her to send some of them here.
Since I was sure they were free from any chemicals like insecticide, I thought it was suitable for marmalade. I have made it from them. Peeling the skin and cutting it thin, I mixed it with the content of the fruits. Sugar was added by 40% of the whole weight. Simmering it for sometime, it became slightly gluey and translucent. Here it is the fresh fruity marmalade of Hassaku. It is very good to be spread on bread as well as to add to yogurt.
