When you have lemons ....make Marmalade!
(And use Meyer Lemons !)
A summer wedding prompted
this marathon of Meyer Lemon Marmalade making
9 batches of marmalade to make 132 4 oz jars
Took 81 lemons= 9 lemons each batch
22.5 cups of sugar= 2.5 cups each batch
27 cups of water = 3 cups water each batch
We used the wonderful Pomona's Universal Pectin
and used only 5 or maybe 6 boxes total!
Follow their directions!!!
It's a wonderful pectin and I will never use any other.
and it really helps to have Chef Jay's kitchen available!
It took us a total of just 6.5 hours from start to finish
Notice please I am now allowing myself a beer! Whew!
Here's a photo of the marvelous pectin!
Used so little sugar compared to other
dextrose laden pectins- which made
our Marmalade much healthier and tastier.
So- where's the sunshine and lounging chairs????
Happy Weekend everyone!
