Description

Believe it or not we found a way to make a Seville orange marmalade and still stick within our rules of using 60% rescued fruit. We bought the oranges already shredded and used crab apple juice instead of water to make it. Wow it is really good – nice and tart! Then for special occasions we have added Irish Whiskey to give it a lovely finish.

Uses: Breakfast items or with a lovely cheddar cheese.

Ingredients:

Sugar, crab apple juice, Seville oranges

Ingredient Sourcing:

Crab apples rescued locally, sugar from Alberta and Seville oranges from Spain. The Whiskey is also from outside the country.

City:

Edmonton

Province or State:

Alberta

Other Products

We do make a plain Crimson Marmalade without the whiskey.

Description of the social cause benefiting from purchases of your product(s).

We use our profits to make fruit snacks for food programs in the city that support those who are in need. Over the last 2 years with the manpower of wonderful volunteers we have made and donated about 27,000 individual snacks. These are apple chips, fruit leather, and apple sauce tubes.
We also provide work experience and volunteer opportunities for those who want the opportunity to contribute to others. This is usually with the apple snack program. Some tasks are perfect for those who have a variety of limitations.
When it comes to picking we will priorize those who are no longer able to care for their fruit trees.

Description of environmental benefits

We use local fruit that grows in people's yards instead of letting it go to waste. We also work with other groups in the city who want local fruit for their charity or food programs. By speaking to homeowners we are able to educate them about the apple maggot infestation and proper disposal of their yard waste. By teaching preserving classes we help homeowners find ways of using their own fruits.
We compost and recycle whenever possible
