My favorite topping for toast or an English Muffin is Apple Jelly. The problem is I eat it with a spoon right out of the jar and it never makes it to the toast. And I refuse to buy diet anything. So jellies, jams and marmalades are on my No, No list. Along with sodas, cakes and a lot of other foods. Too much sugar.

Yum, PF!

I now remember the Canadian brand that made such wonderful marmalade and jams in the big tins, Empress! Sadly, no longer available.

I make orange marmalade with a tinned seville orange. It is available on Amazon, product is Hartley's Ma Made Thin Cut Seville Oranges, is a product of Spain. It is very easy to make/can.

I've always loved marmalade, especially on warm toast with melted butter for breakfast. But, I know when I'm sick because the only thing I want to eat is marmalade sandwiches!

Smuckers is what the local grocery offers - a choice between regular and sugarless. If I'm going to buy it at all, I'll choose regular. Sometimes when in a pinch for some kind - ANY kind - of dessert, I put the marmalade on a Ritz cracker. Well, several crackers. Sweet 'n' salty 'n' crunchy. Does the job.

Smucker's in Florida, that ain't right!

It's also good on a scoop of ice cold cottage or ricotta cheese.

Oh, Bea. That's not the only thing that ain't right down here in Paradise.

Ooooo. That cottage cheese idea sounds really good. I think nice, sweet marmalade would go well on that plain yogurt I got -- I bought plain to avoid the sugar in that bad old 'fruit added' yogurt.
