Mmmmmarmalade

I've been a domestic goddess this week. Inbetween knitting my Dad's Christmas waistcoat and faffing over what to knit for other relatives I've been making marmalade.

One batch of grapefruit and one of orange and ginger using this recipe. Bloody hell, marmalade is hard work. I've made jam before. Easy peasy. Put fruit and sugar in a pan. Boil. Done. Not so with marmalade. The cooking part is straightforward but separating rind from pith is thirsty work. It's worth it though as I've got a couple of stocking fillers ready.
