    so if marmalade is made from the fruit, juice and pulp of oranges boiled in sugar and water, why are all the best selling brands even allowed to be called marmalade? They are mainly made from glucose/fructose syrup and contain only 20% fruit.

    Lemon, and other fruit, curds were invented in Kurdistan. The K was swapped to a C for tax reasons, as during the Maths uprising in 1908, letters were increasingly taxed on the amount of internal angles they possessed. As a result many letters, such as Z, K, M etc were underused, and the average scrabble score went down.

    Mary Queen of Scots was seasick on a voyage from Scotland to France. Orange jam was the only thing that she could eat, and the crew, being french, used the words “Mary malade” to describe her condition, which she thought was its name.

    MQOS moved to France when she was 5 and returned to Scotland when she was 18. She was probably more comfortable conversing with the French sailors than with the Scots.
