    Default Starting some orange marmalade

    I am using the recipe for Blood oranges and using Temple oranges. The
    recipe is from the Ball Complete Book. I like the recipe because it
    has several possible stopping spots. Hope it turns out well.

    Will have to see if the curb market gets any Blood oranges. Maybe I
    will make some more marmalade from them and maybe even mix Temple and
    Blood. Did that one year and it was good. Don't think I used this
    recipe tho.

    I haven't seen a Blood orange since we moved from Houston 23 years ago.
    They do make a beautiful marmalade. Good luck Susan.

    I will go see tomorrow if the curb market has them or is planning to
    get them or I can remind them. I just found 8 Meyer lemons in the
    freezer. I'm thinking lemon pie. Maybe I should check the freezer a
    little closer. We are working on getting it emptied out or at least
    getting the older stuff out. It at least closes without a fight now
    and I have washed a bunch of FoodSaver bags.

    I see blood oranges occasionally but I thought A&Ps had disappeared eons
    ago. We're running low on apricot jam. I hope we get a crop this
    year. We haven't had any in 2 years (late frosts or snow kill
    the blossoms or small fruit.)

    This weekend the local market (Chicago burbs) had blood oranges, sweet
    lemons (not sure exactly what those are like) and a couple of other
    varieties of citrus that I have never or rarely seen.

    I found the Blood oranges at the local Food Lion. The curb market
    owner said they had them in December and part of January. I will
    finish up the Temple marmalade today and if it is good I will use the
    same recipe for the Bloods.

    Next year I will have to pick up the Blood oranges at the curb market
    in December and put them in the freezer until the Temples come in.
