Fruitful New Year
Not much artwork since I returned from England. A few drawings in my sketchbook that's all. Today I had planned to paint, but I still feel in holiday mode :) So when checking out the fruit in the garden I got sidetracked. Ho hum!
The red grapefruit are juicy and great for eating fresh and hardly need added sugar, they are so sweet! In a few weeks I shall make Lemon Curd, but today I decided to tackle a few Pomelos. Pomelos are similar to huge grapefruits. Whilst delicious, my particular ones are full of pips, and so I decided to use a few of them to make marmalade. I adapted a Seville Orange Marmalade recipe by Delia Smith and fiddled with the quantities It seems to have worked OK. It's cooling in jars just now, so will need testing at breakfast tomorrow.
