Just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! I am currently up on the farm cooking up a storm with my mother! Hope everyone is having a great holiday week! I made some orange and lemon marmalade as a gift this year! It is tangy and lovely: the perfect gift. It is also extremely seasonal as the orange are just beautiful this time of year! My mother’s new kitten Titus helped me with making it, he really is too cute!
This is my mother’s emailed recipe:
2 large oranges
2 large or 3 small lemons
scrub well cut into quarters,remove seeds add 3 cups of water bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes
let stand covered for 12 to 18 hours in a cool place
remove fruit and cut into small shreds
return it to the water it was cooked in
boil 1 hour
add 1 cup of sugar for each cup of fruit mixture
boil until it forms a jelly
place in sanitized jars.
