    I know it's considered old-fashioned but I absolutely love lashings of marmalade on my morning toast! However, I am struggling to find a brand with plenty of peel and is not too sloppy or stiff. The best I have found that was readily available in Tesco was Bonne Maman, but they no longer stock it. Any suggestions?

    I'm afraid I'm a Roses lime marmalade person, but OH has a variety of tastes and has just started on Aldi marmalade and is most impressed!! (He's dead picky so I was surprised :eek:)

    Hang on a couple of months and then make your own. Nothing beats it!

    Ah, now I didn't like the Aldi marmalade! Shame really, as dirt cheap.

    We always have Frank Cooper's Vintage Oxford Marmalade (the 'Original' variety is also excellent).

    Used to be made here in Oxford - but not, alas, any more, although they have a marmalade museum in the city centre. Available from Waitrose and others.

    That one is just a bit too bitter for me - I am very fussy! Has anyone tried making the 'Mamade' in the tins?

    I always pick the peel out of mine - I could send it to you.

    I once bought a jar of marmalade with no peel - I was beside myself. I ended up putting it on my porridge because I couldn't bear to waste it.

    Frank Cooper for me too, just original one.

    Frank Cooper Original here too. If anyone knows of a similar one that is cheaper that would be great. I stock up when Sainsbury’s have it on offer.

    Husband likes Sainsbury's own Extra Thick. He really ladles it on but has no butter.

    "Marmalade is tasty when it's very thickly spread."
    I use the Lakeland tins which are the same as the Marmade ones, but I can find them in the shops. Also, you don't have to do it in January, when you don't have time. You can buy the tins and make it whenever you need to.
    It's good stuff and remarkably easy to make. There are two kinds of orange marmalade - thick cut and medium cut - and lemon marmalade.
    I also have a really easy recipe for grapefruit marmalade. Just say if you'd like it.
    Honestly, jam and marmalade are easy to make and so much yummier. And cheaper. And you know what's in them.

    Lidl do a thick cut marmalade. Not a brand you would have heard of (Maribel) but it is very nice. 99p a jar but they often have it on half price offer. When they do we carry off a few jars. They also have thin cut plus fruit jams in the same brand. All are very good and again often at 49p a jar.

    I don’t like the peel. So it’s shredless for me every time. My grandad used to make the Mamade stuff.

    Maleficent prefers Sainsbury's Basics marmalade. In the days when I could have made my escape I used to bring her toast and sausages covered in marmalade for breakfast.
