Fine line between love and hate

Howdy Cuffuflers!

Well – up until yesterday I didn’t like marmalade – I would go so far as saying I hated it, but I definitely didn’t love it. So…… on getting a stack of organic Seville oranges, I started on creating a recipe that I would like. I’ve done 3 batches so far – 2 containing alcohol – one of which includes basil (it seems I am addicted to adding herbs to my concoctions!) and one is a very traditional recipe.

Deluxe as it has booze and basil in it!

So…… now to get more luscious oranges to work with. I’m fired up and raring to go. I do however need to keep a check on the experimentation and actually make some up for sale! But I can’t help it – I’ve got so many ideas….. ginger, lime, lemon, clementines, satsumas, grapefruit, more booze, more herbs and combinations of all of the above. Oh my…… and I need to get on with making more chutneys and cordials too.

When I get more sevilles I will try and curb my excitement and take more pictures of the process but……. not having smellivision, you won’t get the benefit.

Many thanks go to my lovely friend Bee Robertson for giving me her Gran’s recipe and helping me with the juicing etc.

  1. Would you like to consult my grandma’s “Complete Modern Housewife” book published in 1933, price three and six with many different suggestions for marmalade combinations?
