What a vivid color it is, and seem to be very delicious
I do not make it. I sometimes buy it from Mr. bakery.
The thing is delicious though it made for myself than bought one.
You are good at cooking.

Snap - great minds think alike - finally got around to starting mine yesterday and finished it today. Doesn't it smell wonderful!
What with that and bread baking today our little home smelt heavenly - not for sale though! Either our little home or the marmalade!

Grest to find that so many men, who happen to like growing their own food like me, also like cooking it and other food.

Busy day tomorrow jointing the 6 chickens that are now ready for my freezer which I am collecting tomorrow. None of my babes though!

As usual - fantastic photos.

Have a good weekend.

Mike, it doesn't look as if you need tips about freezing Seville oranges for marmalade! But it does mean you don't have to make it all at once, which is the daunting part if you eat a lot of marmalade, or like to have lots to give away (or sell in the WI market in my stepmother's case). I still haven't started mine, although I do have some oranges in my freezer.

Great blog - I'm sure to pick up a few tips from you, horticultural and photographic.

Best wishes,
Joanna

AL: The smells are wonderful aren't they? Really though it's all about the reception things get from the family you can have as much pleasure as you like making it but if they turn their noses up it's all for nothing. (Luckily that doesn't happen too often!). Sue was sitting at the table saying "Excellent marmalade" in an appreciative fashion this morning so that was all right!

Good luck with the chickens tomorrow. Can you let me know how you prepare pumpkin for freezing. I've roasterd one and I was thinking odf just cutting the skin off and chucking it in.

Joanna: Thanks for your comment!
I always run out of marmalade a few months after I've made it and as it is in my view virtually essential I will feel smug every time a I remember I've got oranges in the freezer - so thanks again!

Last year I missed the season and didn't make any at all which is why I got off the mark so sharply when I saw them this year.

I am really looking forward to having a good look through your blog for some recipes!
All the best, Mike
