This Weekend ...

... I made marmalade, marveling as I do every year, that every bit of the orange is used - rind, pith, flesh and pips.  I now have 9 jars of bottle sunshine to see us through the next six months.  If I manage another batch next weekend then I should have enough for a year, with a few spare to pass on to friends and family.


  1. I have never made marmalade. I'm not sure why because I enjoy eating it and love to make chutneys etc. Hope you enjoy yours Gai. A

    1. You should give it a go. Preparing the oranges is a bit fiddly but after that it's a doddle - and it makes the house smell like the south of Spain!
