Marmalade 2017

Although I put it down as a February goal, I’ve actually started the marmalade making already.

On Saturday, I bought 3 kg of seville oranges. Which is three batches, which should last the year. The real issue is the amount of sugar I need to buy in one hit, I feel like a walking advert for type 2 diabetes!img_5877I use the Delia Smith marmalade recipe as a base except I just use granulated sugar instead of preserving sugar. For this batch I made a dark marmalade by subbing 500g of the white sugar with dark brown sugar. This idea came from Felicity Cloake in the Guardian but I bought the wrong sugar so just halved the amount.img_5880I find the shredding part quite therapeutic…img_5882And there you have it, my first batch of 2017… There are lots of other ways you can play with the flavour, a glug of whiskey or gin would work well, but I think I like it best like this?
