So between me yelling "sit" "stay!" and "give me your foot" and "don't kiss me" anyone near the house or door would wonder what in the hell was going on in here. Maisie, mean time just sat obediently outside the door, listening to her son being told off, glad she wasn't having to clean him, and waiting for her turn to come in. She's such a sweetie.
After all of that we all needed something happy and calming.
Marmalade. Yes that on toast sounds nice.
So last weekend, I made some.
I have made it before. And for any of you that have, you know it takes alot of time, and its alot of work. And just like with any jam or marmalade you can't let the fruit just wait.
So I cheated.
But its a good cheat.
Its from Lakeland and its Oh So Easy!! And it does exactly what it says on the tin. All you need is sugar, a bit of water and jars. Oh, and make sure your cooker is on, mine was turned off at the wall, so when I turned on the ring and nothing was happening after a few minutes that was why.
All that is in the tin is pure seville oranges, nothing else. You can buy medium or thick cut, I chose medium cut. There's even lemon, that they say is nice too. I know some may like the prep of making marmalade, but it is time consuming, here you get the homemade results without ALL of the work. And its a wee bit cheaper as the 1 tin makes up to 6lbs of marmalade and only costs £2.49.
