Behold marmalade

And here's the first batch for the year. We've tried it and it's absolutely delicious.

My mum gave me another batch-worth of empty jars today so I'll have to return them to her all filled up. While my husband, when on form, can go through a 250ml jar a fortnight, I hope I'll have enough altogether to last us for a year and enable us to supply our family and friends with some orangey delight as well. This year we ran out two months ahead of schedule. I had no idea of my husband's capacity for home-made marmalade - it's twice the capacity for shop bought!!


  1. Would you consider sharing your recipe, or is it a family secret? My dad is quite fond of the stuff.

    I am enjoying your blog. I've always wanted to visit Australia.

  2. Hi Sox, the recipe is now here on my blog. Enjoy!

  3. Sox, you'd probably enjoy Australia as the attitude of the people is very like that of the Canadians (as I found when I visited lovely Canada 14 years ago). The scenery is just as striking but in a less snowy way :-) and the landscape just as big and all-encompassing when you leave the towns and get into the desert and outback.
