They have over 30 assorted citrus varieties and kindly sent me boxes and bags of Grapefruit, Oranges, Lemons, Limes and Mandarins .
Ok so there has been a lot of slicing...juicing....washing of jars....
So far i have made Grapefruit and Ginger marmalade
Lemon and Lime marmalade
Three fruit marmalade
My favorite is the Grapefruit and Ginger.
Since Hubby doesn't like marmalade I brought some strawberries on sale and made him batch of jam.
And since I was in the mood I also picked the last of my Beetroot and made a batch of relish with the following very easy recipe.
750g Beetroot, peeled and grated 750ml malt vinegar
500g apples ,peeled,cored &chopped 500g sugar
1 onion, chopped 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
200 g dried figs, chopped, (the recipe did say raisins but i didn't have any)
Place all ingredients in a preserving pan and leave to stand 2 hours.
Place pan over medium heat and slowly bring contents to the boil.
Simmer 1 1/2 - 2 hours until reduced,thick and syrupy.
Remove from heat, pour into warm, sterilised jars and seal.
Still more fruit left on the laundry bench................maybe a batch of 3 fruit marmalade with ginger.....................
Sharing today's recipe with Robin and Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard.
