Lady Marmalade

By Linda Tancs

Dundee, Scotland is known for science.  Science themes are explored at Dundee’s Sensation science center with some 60 hands-on exhibits, and Mills Observatory is the only full time public observatory and planetarium in the UK.  Lesser known may be the science of marmalade production.  Dundee has a long association with marmalade, reportedly beginning in the 1700s.  The tale goes that a local grocer bought a ship’s cargo of oranges when the vessel docked in Dundee harbor during a storm.  He passed the oranges on to his wife who used them to make a fruit preserve that proved vastly popular.   True or not, Dundee and marmalade go together like peanut butter and jelly–uh, make that marmalade.
