Lady Marmalade


A friend gave me all these gorgeous oranges from her tree today which got me thinking about how to use them.  It’s been a busy day in the Boiled Eggs & Soldiers Kitchen!  

I’ve never made marmalade before but love it on toast so I gave it a try.  For other orange recipes check out the Orange Yoghurt Cupcakes and Jaffa Biscuits.

Sorry that I’ve only done a Thermomix recipe but it made it very easy and quick and it’s a great combination of tart and sweet. To make the marmalade you will need 2 oranges and a lemon, water and sugar.  Makes about 500 mls in only 30 minutes.

I’m looking forward to breaky tomorrow with freshly squeezed orange juice and marmalade on toast!
