Marmalade Winter 2012

Winter citrus ...they have to be good for you !
Like little xmas lights blinking out at you on those horrible cold rainy days I think they have to be seen as a bit of bright sunshine during the winter months.

With some oranges from the in-laws country garden and some mandarins from my garden I made marmalade. Naturally all organic, they just needed a wee wash, a juice, slice and off I went. It had been a while and maybe my brain wasn't quite in gear so I totally forgot to temperature check my sugar and had to reboil it all to reach setting point so I have a marmalade that is a little stiffer than I would like but it is still radiant in delicious bright sunshiny citrus flavour. Perfect gift for all those who are sick and need winter love to get them through these dark months.?
