    Default Kumquat marmalade

    There are 10.5 pints of kumquat marmalade in two different BWB canners
    at this moment. Another five minutes and they will be coming out to cool
    and seal. We're also preparing to do another big batch but I have to go
    buy some more lids first. Pretty much used up what we had lying around.
    Ain't it tough when you have to buy more lids? <BSEG>

    Bumper crop of kumquats this year, all the relatives, near and far, are
    getting bags of them for Christmas. We were also gifted with many lemons
    and grapefruit this year, evidently SW Louisiana is having a good year
    for citrus.

    No such store here, I have to go to the local supermarkets. Was at
    Kroger yesterday and they had only three boxes of regular lids left, I
    bought all three in case there is a famine. <G>

    I have looked online for lids but have been wary of buying them as I
    know no one who has used the ones available. They're definitely not
    Jardin branded. I guess I'll keep on looking.

    I've been the happy recipient and will attest to its goodness. Good on

    Aw!Golly gee whiz. That's a pat on the back from the Mother Superior of
    HOSSPOJ, thank you.

    Is it cold in Minnesota yet? We got about two inches of rain yesterday
    and more is forecast for Saturday and Sunday. Thank you Ma Nature.

    Miz Anne is en route to Tomball, TX for Christmas brunch with the
    youngun's. I am so sore from bending and squatting while painting my
    office walls I couldn't stand the three hour drive. Just me and Tilly
    Dawg but Miz Anne will be back tomorrow. We will celebrate Christmas
    with just the two of us and the dawg, not a strange thing anymore as our
    youngest child left home in 1980. 51 years of wedded bliss on 12/26. Are
    we the only nutcases that got married the day after Christmas?

    OB: Broccoli getting cut on a daily basis. What we don't eat fresh (I
    like it raw with a dip or lightly steamed with a dab of butter)gets
    blanched and vacuum bagged for later use. Cauliflower should be ready to
    harvest by next week. Carrots are also coming in like gang busters. Time
    to get out the pressure canner for those orange delights. Turnips and
    BEETS are next. Glorious, delicious, wonderful BEETS. <G>

    Thank you, even after 51 years it's not a "Ho Hum" day for us. We met on
    June 7, 1958 in Lexington Park, MD, just outside the Naval Air Station
    where I was a member of a transport squadron. Fell in love with her
    instantly and convinced her to marry me eighteen months later. Now we've
    got two kids, five grandkids, and five great grand. Life is very good,
    even when you're old. <G>

    It is cold and damp here in SW Louisiana, has been this way for several
    days now. I think we might finally pulling out of the drought that has
    been going on for two years.

    OB: Food preserving. Going to pick broccoli and carrots today. Will
    freeze the broccoli and pressure can the carrots.
