After an entire afternoon of boiling, peeling, scraping and chopping, I have failed at the last hurdle!
It's my own fault. :(
I was consulting too many recipes, got distracted and added 5 oz too much sugar to my Orange Marmalade. So much for that tart, zesty taste I was going for...
Marmalade is merciless. Absolutely unforgiving. Even when you KNOW that you've messed up and made a huge mistake, there is nothing you can do except to keep going. You have to see it through to the bitter, or over-sweetened end, not matter what shape it's in.
...I'm sure there's a life lesson in there somewhere, but frankly, I can't be bothered!
Oh well, in the words of Scarlett O'Hara, tomorrow is another day.
