Gardening no, but…

Marmalade making was the order of the day , actually two days . The pith and pips  had an over night soak in a little muslin bag in the pot last night.
Today they have been bubbling away for hours and hours , while I  tested with spoonfuls on chilled plates  in the fridge.
I used Nigel Slatter's recipe : Nigel Slater's marmalade recipes | Life and style but with Texas red grapefruit , lemons and heirloom navel oranges.
I think the forecast is for rain all week so I'll have to hunt out more jars …


  1. Love seeing the pantry fill up with goodies. Marmalade is a fave.

    1. Ricki, I made two batches of chutney last week :)

  2. Oh yum! Now that is a lovely way to spend a rainy day.

    1. It is very yummy ! I did dump all those jars into a pot the next day …thought it was a bit too runny , so I reboiled it with more sugar …now it is perfect !
