Dundee marmalade

Quick Reference

Dundee marmalade is a type of rich dark marmalade originally made in the Scottish city of Dundee, on the Firth of Tay. As early as 1856 Charles Dickens, in Household Words, was writing of it as the acme of marmalades: ‘anchovy paste, Dundee Marmalade, and the whole stock of luxurious helps to appetite’. The term was registered as a trademark by James Keiller and Son in 1880.
