The Australian Marmalade Awards Are Open Now


It might be cold outside in Adelaide right now, but this year's oranges are hanging ripe in our gardens and in the Riverland. What better time to get into your cosy kitchen and show your skills at making marmalade, then entering the Australian Marmalade Awards competition.

This year's competition kicked off on Sunday 29 July at Beaumont House with the Citrus Festival, where you could pick up an entry form, taste some winning marmalade, and hear some expert talks on making marmalade and growing citrus.

You have a choice of two competition sections available in the Australian Marmalade Awards this year - home-made or artisan.

Most of us will enter the home-made section which has a number of categories: Seville Orange, Any Citrus, Marmalade with a Twist, Gardener's Marmalade, Children's Marmalade, Man Made Marmalade, Beaumont Kitchen Marmalade, 'Octogenarian and upwards' and Heritage Marmalade. Choose the category that suits you by checking the definitions on the back of the home-made competition entry form.

The Artisan Competition is open to all small-scale commercial producers.

The competition is open from now until Friday 21 September, and the winners are announced at the 2018 Festival of Marmalade, which takes place at Beaumont House on Sunday 7 October 11am to 5pm.

The Festival of Marmalade will celebrate the winners of the Australian Marmalade Competition and all things citrus. Come and enjoy spring in the beautifully manicured grounds of Beaumont House, which will be transformed into a citrus paradise. You'll find citrus plants for sale, information on Riverland citrus, how to grow citrus, and practical demonstrations of cooking with citrus. There will also be citrus-themed stalls, displays, a tasting table, food-trucks, and presentations on growing citrus and marmalade.

All marmalades entered into this year's competition will be on display inside Beaumont House and the awards will be presented by the National Trust's major partner, Jane Hasell-McCosh, of Dalemain Estate, Cumbria, UK. Dalemain Estate are inventor and presenter of the incredibly successful World's Original Marmalade Awards and Festival UK for over twelve years.

All gold winners will receive a certificate for their winning marmalade and the champions of this year's Australian competition receive free entry to the world championship of marmalade at Dalemain in the UK in March 2019 and may have their winning marmalade produced for sale by South Australia's very own Beerenberg Farm.

So try your hand at making a batch of marmalade and see whether you're good enough to win an award.
