Our lemon and lime trees are groaning with their second crop of citrus for the year - must be all that rain. So this weekend I will be making pickle and marmalade...and then a bit more marmalade.
I started the lime pickle tonight, but there are still enough limes in the basked for a couple of batches of marmalade.....and plenty more on the tree! 1kg of limes makes about 10 jars of marmalade.
I couldn't resist buying a couple of kilos of Seville oranges in the greengrocer's. They make the best marmalade, so I will be whipping up a batch of whiskey Seville marmalade this weekend. This afternoon one of our friends dropped by with a huge bag of tangelos and some mandarins and lemonade lemons. So that's the juice and snacks taken care of.
