Ate about 1/4 of one of those jars of marmalade at breakfast today. So good. The set was a little loose, but the rindy bits were nicely suspended. It was jelled. Just softly so. Those 2 jars are not going to last long. I may not even bother refrigerating the second one. It won't have time to go bad.
Anyway, yeah. I guess I'd be rash to characterize marmalade as a 'forgiving' jam to make, but in comparison with strawberries or pears or other things basically without pectin, I'd say it is.
J reports seeing a 4 lb. bag of oranges for $1.50 in Tucson yesterday. Sadly enough, I'd say that cheap citrus is near the top of my list of reasons to get excited about our approaching move. Here is the list:
Reasons to get excited about the move:
And the other list. Reasons to be horrified at the prospect of the move:
1. Moving 3 cats cross-country.
That's kind of it. I guess it's encouraging that the first list is longer than the second list, although I'm not sure that the plane ride thing doesn't outweigh the benefits of cheap citrus. Certainly I'd trade access to Sonoran hot dogs for not having to move the cats. Oh, well.previous next
