T is making home-made marmalade. Nothing odd about that. Except it's -4 degrees outside and with the kitchen window open a blizzard is blowing in instead of the steam blowing out.

Lovely smell of oranges and lemons though.

Remember those old support stocking you got post op. from the hospital? Dont throw them away. With a knot in one end they make a handy bag for the fruit pips so that pectin can be added to the mix! Very attractive indeed.


  1. Reminds me of mum and dad making it in the Georgian House! Yummy.

  2. Hello you. I see you've worked out how to post a comment!

  3. Fiona,
    You're making my mouth water:)

  4. It's delicious Carla. Wish I could send you and Steve some, but it's very very sticky and the envelope would go soggy!
