On Friday night I sat down and wrote out a heap of Jam labels for the cooking I was going to do on this Monday's Public Holiday and dated all the labels 1/8/11 (1st August).
My boyfriend picked ALL the fruit off my lemon tree and my navel orange tree on Saturday morning, so armed with clean bottles, cooking ingredients and utensils, we ended up spending yesterday afternoon and all day today in his kitchen.
We made over 30 bottles of Orange Marmalade:
4 bottles and 2 half cup containers of Lemon & Lime Butter:
Over 12 bottles & containers of Lemon Curd (Butter):
And when I came home from his place late this afternoon (Sunday), I made the last of the lemons into Lemon Cordial... it is soaking now to be bottled tomorrow.
I was sooooo pleased with myself, knowing I had used all my fruit, no waste.
I was just finishing the washing up from the cordial making, when there was a knock on my door. It was my neighbour and she presented me these 2 bags:
Until next post...
