|All 26lbs - should see us through the week!|
|Softening the fruit|
It's been a couple of years (thanks to red spider mites) since we had such a crop of lemons but this weekend saw another mammoth marmalade production line over the weekend! Our lemon tree certainly came up trumps as I picked a full 6 lbs of fruit which made 26lbs of marmalade. Good job it wasn't more as I wouldn't have had enough jars! As it was, I was really scraping the barrel. It had to be made in 2 batches and I substituted much of the sugar with Xylitol - a natural birch sugar which can be metabolised in safety by those for whom sugar is bad thing! Lemon Marmalade - from tree to jar!
