You could buy 208kg, 458 pounds, of Cottee's Breakfast Marmalade

"A pound of orange conserve costs 3 shillings, as much as a skilled labourer earns in nine days. Can you imagine working for nine days for one pound of orange marmalade" "Small wonder that the poor skip breakfast." β€” Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England, Ian Mortimer Source: shorturl.at/iknX9 

Currently, with the median 2022 Australian employee earnings of $1,250/week, you could buy 208kg, 458 pounds, of Cottee's Breakfast Marmalade from Amazon, with free shipping, for nine days equivalent pre-tax dollars; an increase of roughly 45,700%. 🍊
