I really only like homemade marmalade and have been making marmalade since I was in my early 20s.
My mum always made her own marmalade and used to put the peel through the mincer, I would help by turning the handle.
When I spoke to her at the weekend she was planning to make some marmalade and bemoaning the fact that she no longer has that mincer!
I managed to source some Seville Oranges and turned to my old favourite recipe from Home and Freezer Digest (regular readers will have worked out by now that I learnt a lot of my cooking from this little magazine published in the 1980s and 90s) I usually chop the peel in the food processor for home consumption, but this time I am entering a jar of marmalade in the World’s Original Marmalade Awards and Festival 2nd & 3rd March 2013
in Cumbria, attracts thousands of entries from all over the world. Everyone who sends in a jar gets their marmalade
tasted by a panel of expert judges and then gets sent a personalised mark card
with feedback on how the marmalade can be improved – or if they are lucky a gold, silver or bronze award. Judges for 2013 include Pam Corbin and the WI.
