I decided I could make many of my Christmas gifts this year!
The first thing I made is some tangerine and Meyer lemon marmalade. Here's the recipe:
5-7 Meyer lemons
and 4 cups sugar
6 cups water
Thinly slice tangerines and Meyer lemons. I cut off the ends then slice them in half and cut out the seeds (they are usually along the middle and I dry them to plant them but you don't have to. I have a passion for citrus and grow two lemon trees and two lime trees on my window sill.)
I put the fruit in with the water on high and once they are boiling I add the sugar.
I turn the heat down to medium high and let simmer for another half hour stirring often to make sure that it doesn't stick until the marmalade darkens and thickens a little.
Then it's time to put it in jars! In one afternoon you have about 12 jars of jam to give to friends and family.
