We love marmalade and will try this real soon.

Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results.

I may have to try this. I've made mullberry jelly before but have never tried marmalade.

Thanks. I think I'll give this a try. Citrus fruit is expensive in the US right now, but buying a few fruits is probably cheaper than buying an equivalent amount of marmalade, and making it this way you can be sure of what the ingredients are and that there are no preservatives in it.

There was much rejoicing!

this winter we had too many oranges
we ate we drank
we throw in the garbage
we gave to friends
lemons the same
ok had to buy sugar
next year will be making from the begining marmalade
why not give to friends i only see in summer and i picked there lemons
they know i pick them
so the only thing it is costing me is sugar
this was my first marmalade
never tryed before to make
so it turned out good
not i bit bitter
maybe next year will make 5 or 10 times as much
have allot of friends
and family

Glad you had fun!
My only reservation is dietary. Jam has a lot of sugar. If the fruit is okay I'd rather eat it than make jam with it. And as I don't eat bread I don't have much use for jam. Occasionally I stir some through my vanilla yoghurt if I'm getting bored with the flavour.
I made mango jam at the peak of the season in October. Enough to get me through to next mango season!

Hi::-))

I live in PA and this week our Shop Rite has four pounds of oranges for $1.99 and six lemons for $1.99. Most of us have sugar on hand and the idea of a preservative-free product is always appealing!

Sounds good. I would have to price oranges. I think they might be hard to come by because of the weather in recent months.

it is so easy to make
in a big bowl chop 4 oranges and 2 lemon
that you have washed
yes the whole thing with the outside too
fill the bowl with water and put in fridge
change the water 2 times a day
leave them 2 days like that with water changing
after remove all seeds
puree them
count how many cups the puree is and add the same amount of sugar
bring to a boil
no water
when ready put in glass jars and when cool enjoy
made it and loved it
it is so simple and easy
if you try it post here
would love to hear your idea about jam
