What is it?

Orange Marmalade is a fruit preserve that is similar in consistency to a jelly, but also has bits of fruit—in this case orange—suspended evenly throughout. In addition to the fruit, orange marmalade usually contains sugar, water, orange zest and orange oil.

Though mostly often associated with breakfast as spread for toast and baked goods, marmalade is also widely used in sauces, marinades, and glazes.
