Featured Recipe: Orange Honey Marmalade

So 0ne of the recipes Celia included in our meal plan coming up in a few weeks calls for orange marmalade… (spoiler alert: it also calls for beef ribs, chipotle, and cooking all day long in the crockpot… o.m.g. DELISH!) Surprisingly we were actually able to find a Dr. Brown approved bottled orange marmalade, but we thought it might be nice to have a fresh homemade version as well. Seriously, this stuff is so good! I can’t wait to have it atop some paleo toast or biscuits! Check it out!
