It's way to early to have anything else On My Mind this morning.....
I have made myself a nice cup of tea and some toast with my favourite homemade Marmalade.....
I promised to send this recipe to Mrs Moo, so here it is:
Sweet Orange Marmalade
Juice of 2 lemons
4 cups water
4 cups sugar
Cut the Oranges and lemon in half and squeeze out the juice.
Keep the pips and tie them in a muslin bag.
Thinly or coarsely (depending on how chunky you like your Marmalade) chop the skins
Put the cut oranges, juice and bag of pips and water into a saucepan, bring slowly to the boil and simmer gently for approx 2 hours or until the skins are tender.
Add sugar and stir until it dissolves, remove bag of pips and boil rapidly for approx 15 - 20 minutes or until a little will set on a chilled saucer.
Remove from heat, allow to settle then bottle and seal.
I think I did pretty a pretty good job with this considering it was my first ever batch. With citrus season just around the corner, I am looking forward to trying a few other variations to this recipe this year.
Anybody got any hot tips for making a Good Marmalade?
