Making Marmalade With Mammy!

Today me and my Mam made orange marmalade! It was sooooooo much fun! :)
Last night we juiced the fruit and left the skin and pith to steep all night. We threw in lemon and lime to bitter it up a little ;)
Then today we boiled it all up with sugar after she chopped up the oranges nice and small to make the peel for the marmalade.
After it changed colour it was ready to put into the jars. We put the jars into the oven to heat them and then when they were nice and warm got pouring!
After that we decorated them... And "Voilà" we were done! Yummers!!! A day spent with Mammy is a day spent well! <3
