A FEW NOTES

The second recipe is from Seville. I think perhaps the Barber used it when he wasn't cutting hair or singing .

If no muslin bag is available a J. cloth is a good substitute


A pressure cooker reduces softening time considerably. Peel must be soft before sugar is added because it won't soften after.

For a darker marmalade substitute 1 ounce of treacle for 1 ounce of the sugar .


If a lot of scum forms on the surface of the marmalade as it boils a small piece of butter helps disperse it.


To test for set.Put a spoonful of marmalade on a cold plate.If the surface wrinkles when pushed with the finger it is ready.10 to 15 minutes cooking is usually enough.If it's boiled too much it won't set


I used to have a sugar boiling thermometer but two years ago I happily plunged it into boiling marmalade and to my amazement it came out minus the glass bowl and mercury so I had to throw the lot away I haven't bothered with one since.


When cooked leave the marmalade in the pan until a skin forms -- about 15 minutes then pot in warm jars-- this stops the peel from floating to the top.

Fellow Marmalade Makers have I forgotten anything or have you any more tips?

If all this sounds a bit of a hassle wait until the supermarket has marmalade on offer (this usually coincides with your labelling of your very last jar) and get stocked up .
GOOD LUCK !!
