mothers revenge!

I asked my mum to see if there were any seville oranges on the market when she went last wednesday, hoping to make a few jars of mamalade.
she came home with 15lb of oranges!
so - had to get 30lb sugar, and find every jam jar I could...

here we are this afternoon, a work in progress...

had to employ all the weights I could find
hours and hours of squeezing and slicing

and now it all bubbling awayon the stove.

I am making a third with this meathod, a third from fruit I am boiling whole, and the last third (because I refuse to slice any more) I am going to attempt to candy the peel and make a clear marmalade with the pulp...

may have to pull an all nighter!
