Marmalade is a jam containing chunks of fruit. When made with citrus fruit, it is made of juice, pulp and peel. Like with jams, the traditional method of cooking in pots is used for marmalade, giving them a delicious taste of yesteryear.
Boiling in pots
Les Comtes de Provence has opted to cook its fruit in pots. This is a traditional method, used by artisans and also our grandmothers. The width of the pot spreads the heat out to ensure the fruit cooks evenly and prevents overcooking. This enhances the concentration of taste and flavour. Cooking in pots also preserves the environment, because the temperature rises faster, leading to energy savings.
