I bought mine at my local grocery which is not fancy and does not carry specialty products. This can of marmalade-fixings was set on the store shelf near the sugar.
The whole thing was such a success I'm planning to make more.
The recipe is on the back of the can and calls for 1.8 kg of sugar. I bought some organic cane sugar, in part because the measuring had been done for me: each carton holds 900 grams.
I cooked down the marmalade as per the instructions, adding in a couple of teaspoons of butter to disperse the foam. When it looked as though it was near the end of its cooking time (it calls for about 15 minutes of boil time) I added my secret ingredient:
I boiled the concoction a bit more. As the smell of scotch wafted upstairs to the family room I think it gave MrBP an idea: a little glass of scotch with that football game?
Have you made marmalade? Ever set eyes on a can of "Ma Made"?
