Window, Fruit and Marmalade Making

06 Jan

On our way back from buying the Seville oranges from our super greengrocer this morning, I spotted an upper window with the following message – good advice..

We bought enough oranges for five recipes worth, two batches today, two tomorrow and one amount frozen for later in the year.  That should last us a year for ourselves and some gifts.

Beautiful Seville Oranges from #TheGrowbox

First two batches made today,  5 x 1lb jars, 10 x middle sized ones and 13 x tiny ones for special breakfasts of one sort  or another. I love how the process and the smells of the marmalade bring my Dear Dad into the kitchen with me. He was the marmalade maker as I grew up. It was he who encouraged me and watched as I made a batch to earn my badge at Guides.

Still needing labels

    I love jamming! I did a whole bunch before Christmas.

    BTW, is “guides” a girl scout thing?

      I think probably so. Brownies or Cub Scouts first and then,11-18, Scouts or Guides. That’s how it used to be! 😘
