Marmalade season is once again here and bringing some sweet, bright joy to an otherwise dark and grey January. Whether you’re a seasoned jam maker or it is your first time having a go, our easy-to-follow recipe is suitable for everyone to use this month. Seville oranges are the traditional citrus fruit to be used which offer sweetness as well as sharpness to the preserve and they are readily available at this time of year because they’re in season. Remember you need jam jars to store your sweet sticky spread!
What You Need
Lightly butter the base of a saucepan to help prevent the marmalade from catching and pour your water into the pan.
Cut your lemons and oranges in half and squeeze out the juice into the water.
Next cut up your orange skins into quarters, then one by one roll them tightly up and cut into little shreds – how big you cut these is up to your preference.
Add these to the liquid mix and bring the pan to the boil.
Simmer very gently for 2 hours until the peel is very soft. It is done when you can squeeze a piece of peel in half but be careful to let a test bit cool before attempting this.
Add the sugar to the pan, stirring over low heat until all the crystals are dissolved and then simmer for 15 minutes.
To test if the marmalade is ready, place a plate in the freezer and drop a few drops onto it. If the mixture crinkles when you push it with your finger it is ready to be poured into your jam jars. If it isn’t quite done, keeping testing it at five-minute intervals.
We all plan to improve ourselves in the new year, making resolutions that most of us half-heartedly stick too, but with a bit of planning and preparation keeping true to your new lifestyle. Healthier eating, weight loss and eating more fruit and vegetables are common promises amongst the general population and if your one of the many trying to start a healthier lifestyle in 2021, we’ve got some ideas of how you can stay on track!
Ask any dieting professional, fitness guru or personal trainer and they all say the secret to success is preparing healthy meals ahead so that you won’t be led astray and tempted by a less healthy alternative if you’re too tired or busy to make a meal on a particular day. The secret to prepping meals ahead and making them last all week is a good storage solution. Thankfully, we can offer a variety of glass jars suitable for keeping food fresh whether it’s being stored in the fridge, freezer or a dry store.
Make Your Own Food
Buying heavily processed food or ready meals, even the healthy versions, can be detrimental to a healthy balanced diet plan as even the ‘cleaner’ options can be packed with secret sugar and salt that’s used to give them a longer shelf life. Making your own meals doesn’t have to be difficult and if you prep ahead, you can limit the time you have to spend cooking and get it all out of the way in a day. Smoothies, shakes and juices are a great way to get more fruit and veg in your diet and can be kept in glass jars and bottles in the fridge for a quick breakfast in the mornings.
