A friend gave me a pot of freshly home made marmalade last week.
Its not something I am usually a lover of but this was delisious and didnt last the week.
So of course I had to make some. 🙂
Best time to make marmalade is when the Seville Oranges are out in Jan/Feb.
It takes a long time to make marmalade as the oranges have to be simmered for a few hours first to make them soft.
Which then makes them easier to cut into shred.
All the pectin is in the orange pips so these have to wrapped in a muslin bag and boiled with the Juice before adding the sugar.
Just when I was about to panic mine reached setting point.
I cannot really tell if its a good marmalade, in fact I think I would have liked the shred a little more softer.
So now I wait for the verdict, from people who will be lucky enough to get a jar 🙂
