The Bishops Marmalade
An ancestor, Elizabeth Rainbow made this at the Bishop’s palace, outside Carlisle in the 1660’s. When Bishop Rainbow died she moved down to live with her nephew at Dalemain bringing her recipe books with her, and these have been passed down through the centuries. Not only is the name colourful but the marmalade has an extraordinary exuberance. It is described as a red marmalade of quince, making it a veritable visual feast.
