Make Some Marmalade

I got the blues thinking of the future, so I left off and made some marmalade. It's amazing how it cheers one up to shred oranges and scrub the floor.
--D.H. Lawrence

Recipe for Kumquat Marmalade (I assume it would work well for Oranges too.)


3 cups chopped kumquats

1 cup water

6 1/2 cups sugar

1 pkg Sure Jell or Certo

1. Prepare kumquats, half fruit and remove seeds, chop coarsely or slice thinly (Can be put through food chopper).
2. Combine chopped kumquats, water, and Sure Jell.
3. Add sugar and bring to a boil that cannot be stirred down.
4. Continue to boil for one minute. Pour into sterile jars and seal.
Note: Certo can be substituted for Sure Jell but you will need to follow the directions on the Certo package.

Love LOVE that Lawrence quotation! So true...I often find myself able to work off negative emotions through cooking, cleaning, whatever manual labour. Plus there's always the satisfaction of the end result! Thanks for this, Barb :)
