I made one more batch of marmalade today, my last for the season, I think. I saw some Meyer Lemons in the grocery store a few days ago; I'd never heard of them, they're said to be a cross between an orange and a lemon. I found a recipe for Meyer Lemon Marmalade at Wait-And-See Pudding
, and tried it out today. It turned out BEAUTIFULLY! Attached is a picture - it looks just like the Kumquat Marmalade I made a few months ago, only that didn't set and this one worked perfectly. It has a delightfully sharp, tangy zing to it - very refreshing.
I also made the Blood Orange Marmalade I'd been talking about, and it also turned out very beautiful, only a bit sweet for my taste. Dean likes it, though. It's a lovely ruby colour. I discovered an interesting thing; when you cook blood orange peel, the red colour leaches out of it, and it looks just like ordinary orange peel. So my original plan of making a marmalade with orange jelly and red peel wouldn't have worked out, anyway.
