The oranges on the little tree on the front lawn are ripening rapidly.
I used a digital thermometer, a first for me. Since the recipe seemed to have a few inaccuracies, I checked online that it was right about the temperature for jell point - everyone said 105 degrees Celsius, so I aimed for that. Then I mixed the two and bottled it. I finished up with 3 and a half jars. I reused jars that originally had pepperdews in them, if anyone is wondering why it says 'hot' on the label!
Wow, just showed hubby your orange laden tree and he was so impressed -- what a lovely life being able to pluck fruit & veggies from ones own land :-DReplyDelete
Your marmalade looks yummy, although I prefer preserves with those little pieces of fruit.
That looks delicious Jane. I love home made marmalade. Sadly my marmalade making days are long gone now. Enjoy.ReplyDelete
Sounds like you have been busy!! :)ReplyDelete
Your Orange Marmalade looks delicious. I have a friend who makes Lemon Marmalade also. Very yummy. <3ReplyDelete
I have never made marmalade! Yours looks wonderful. One of my daughters-in- law loves spending time in her kitchen and last time I visited her in Canberra I enjoyed homemade blackberry jam for breakfast.ReplyDelete
That looks so yummy. My mom always made jams but we had to buy our fruit from the market.ReplyDelete
Your marmalade looks yummy, never tried to make marmalade, what a pity you are so far away, I would love to try itReplyDelete
Looks gorgeous! The best part of it: it's your own homegrown orange! :)ReplyDelete
Wow you have trees that give forth lemons and you make marmalade I love to pour it over chicken and bake it too!ReplyDelete
