Take advantage of the Citrus fruits i.e. lemons, grapefruits, oranges, clementines tangerines whatever you come across. I made the lime jelly marmalade the other evening, but I have plans to make lots more goodies with these fruits. Primarily marmalades but also curds, jams and jellies and there are also a couple of chutney recipes I am keen to have a go at. You can also juice the fruit and then freeze and bring out to mix with alcohol like clementine juice with champagne makes a lovely Bucks fizz. Or home made Lemoncello. Sorbets and Ice cream. Or how about home made lemon syrup to use as a drink or dribbled over ice cream.
I am chiefly interested in Seville Oranges - but unfortunately my Veg shop does not have them in yet, although they are on the cards as quite a few people have enquired when they are having them. I love the flavour of this wonderful marmalade and slathered over home made bread or toasted for brekkie after a bowl of porridge is seriously good grub. Well its the sort of grub I grew up on and still to this day have on a regular basis. But there are lots of things you can do and lots of recipes out there. I will be posting more recipes of things I am going to have a go at in the course of the next few weeks. Are you starting your "Put Down" early this year too.
My next recipe that I intend to try will be a home made lemon syrup which is very refreshing. I have made this before although not the recipe I am going to use which is here if you want to have a go at it.
Enjoy the playing
