More Marmalade





It had to be done, with Seville oranges being so reduced in price at the nearby grocer’s shop – Waitrose.

Again we sat at the kitchen table, cut, quartered, scraped and then finely chopped the peel. 

Into a muslin bag goes the pith and some lemon. Overnight it rests and readies itself for the final hurdle.

Next day, over the stove it boils and bubbles (the bag of pith and pips is included) two hours or more.

Jars are washed and warmed.
Tested and tasted and then off the stove,
Poured into warm jars, tops on loose for now.

On tight soon, and stored.
