    I could be your soul sistah for the right marmalade.

    A little marmalade drift...
    The story by Michener, "Iberia" describes loading 55 gallon drums 1/2 full with Valencia oranges and sea water then floating them out to a ship anchored just off the beach. By the time they arrived in Scotland, Marmalade!
    The rougher the crossing the better!
    Could be all lies though...

    Marmalade yum, looks tasty. We tried to make marmalade once out of a big bag of tangerines, adding too much pectin, although flavourful it had the consistency of a hockey puck.

    We used a dark sugar, and once the sugar was added and it cooked a bit, it turned a glorious color.

    The half jar we refrigerated yesterday was sampled today. The end product is perhaps a trifle thin, but has a nice balance of flavor. Thereís a little lemon zip left.

    Oh, this is a simple jam. Sugar, fruit, water, heat.

    So, on top of 20 gallons (!) of juice, we have 18 pints of marmalade, Iím not even sure how many pounds of frozen, sliced lemon, and plenty left for a care package, the arrangements for which were finalized yesterday.


    Peace,
    Robert
