I spent a good portion of the weekend making two batches of citrus Marmalade. . .
Grapefruit Marmalade and Meyer Lemon Marmalade. . .
And I couldn’t be happier for it!
See, it was quite serendipitous that Angi was offering some of her excess (completely delicious and organic) Meyer Lemons and Grapefruits at the same time I was learning about Marisa’s Mastery Challenge. . .
And so, instead of making Candied Lemon Peels and Limoncello like I did last time Angi showed her generous spirit, it was that citrus Marmalade had to be added to my January To-Do List.
Following the 1 : 1 : 1 ratios and the whole fruit method, I turned four pounds of lemons into seven half-pints and two and a half pounds of grapefruit into five half-pints.
Aren’t they pretty?
I will admit that I probably left a bit too much of the pith which could be problematic if I allowed it to be, but I’m really ok with it as I don’t have as much of a sweet tooth as many others do 🙂
But we live and we learn, right?
So, with 12 new jars of citrus Marmalade sitting on my shelf, I now need at least 10 recipes with which to use it all up!
See (as you may or may not know by now), I am a creature of habit! And so, I love Marmalade on biscuits and Marmalade on salmon. . .and that’s about it! I’m thinking it’s time to expand my repertoire, don’t ya think?
