The Marmalades

Yes, there are other things in my life, but I have this urge to show you how PRETTY all of the citrus is after I've transformed it into preserves. I love citrusy colors in the first place - it's like playing with a sunshine palette.

Left to right, our marmalade candidates for Most Beautiful preserves of February 2012 are:
Sanguinelli (blood orange), Sarawak (pummelo), Bergamot (sour orange, where they obtain the perfumed flavor of Earl Grey tea), Bouquetier de Nice (sour orange), and Seville (VERY traditional sour orange for English marmalade).

I put up a total of 46 cups of marmalade this month. Hoo-ah.

Do you have a trusted recipe? I've got literally, 1 tonne, of random lemons, oranges and grapefruit outside but Ive had such a bugger of a time with marmalade. It never seems to set for me.
