Marmalade craving and none left in my cupboard, what’s an intrepid canning girl to do? Why, buy some oranges and make her own! It takes almost two days, since I am old fashioned and like to preserve the preservation ways of the past. Soaking overnight, simmering at 7am while getting ready for work, soaking again all day, and then an evening of chopping and simmering and stirring and boiling and tasting and testing and jarring. I should’ve added lemons for an extra dose of pectin (it’s a little.. um.. not-quite-set) but when it comes to marmalade and me, I’ll eat it any way.
