Lovely smell

Guess what - I am making marmalade. I froze 4 3/4 pints of the cooked oranges. I got them out yesterday and now they are on the AGA with 4 3/4 lbs of sugar, bubbling away. I am on the last jar of the stuff that I made at the conventional time.
I might post a picture, when it is done to make marmalade lovers drool Laughing

CalicoKate's Avatar Ooh how lovely, I love jam making. Hate eating marmalade though! M&D have buckets of prepped oranges in the freezer given to them by a friend who hadn't wanted to move the contents of her freezer to Edinburgh when they left Argyll. Mum is finding it very useful to only make eight or so jars at a time instead of a cupboards worth.
I have pints and pints of apple juice in the freezer for jellying at some point.

Frances's Avatar Oh Withy, just the mention of marmalade cheers me. And the thought of a homemade version even better, and now ... with this photo, I just want to make some toast and grab (no, meant ask you politely for) one of those jars.

Delicious, I am sure! xo
