That looks rather delicious :o)

Making marmalade is the first seasonal task of the new year and always reminds me of my Gran making preserves in her tiny kitchen. Seville orange marmalade will always be my favourite, but that made with all-the-year-round available pink grapefruit comes close.
P.s In my kitchen, no cooking at all would happen without the background of BBC Radio 4.

Can almost taste it! I use my mother's recipe which, fingers crossed, does work for me. But it's always good to use a new one and have such brilliant success.

Cosy Books

Such a gift at this time of year - your marmalade looks very tempting.
After a promising beginning, my Meyer lemon tree is only yielding three lemons. Enough for a lemon drizzle cake though!

Mary

It does look good. Do you use a thermometer? I keep meaning to buy one as someone told me recently that it removes all the trauma! I have only ever used the tried and tested wing-it-and-curses method.

Cornflower

No, I've never used a thermometer, though like you I keep thinking it might be a good idea!

Cornflower

Yummy!

Cornflower

It is a time-consuming occupation, so vexing if it doesn't quite turn out as planned, but I am really pleased with this lot.

Cornflower

Yes, I must try the pink grapefruit one!

Cornflower

I wish I could have transmitted the gorgeous smell as it was cooking, Val.

Nancy

I Love Marmalade - especially with Lots of shred.

Claire

I had a jar of similar marmalade which I bought in a shop. I remember the taste was not sweet, even bitter a bit - yummy! Maybe I will make my own someday? Your photos are beautiful indeed :)
