Absolute bliss. Turn them peel side down on to a chopping board and using a sharp serrated knife, slice the peel thinly, almost touching your fingers for a fine shred. Put the chopped membranes and pips into a thin piece of muslin, tie it up with string, and add to the pan of juice, securing it to one of the pan handles. Also, is there a measurement for slicing the rinds? 5 Lemon Cocktails to Make When Life Takes Your Limes. I adore limes, and haven’t made marmalade for roughly 30 years when I made it for my Brownie badge! I’ve never been known for patience! I squuzed as much of the gel out of the bags that I could This twist on traditional lemon curd uses limes instead. I have to confess that I didn’t soak overnight, and I failed to get the membranes out of my lime skins, so I just shredded the skins with the membrane still attached – it just dissolved into the water. You have to leave the marmalade for 5 to 10 minutes after cooking before bottling to allow the peel to settle Helen – but, I am glad that you think that all of the effort was worth it! I tried making marmalade for the first time – mine turned out much too bitter. The local limes here in NZ are usually yellow and on the tree look just like lemons. I make and sell my preserves to raise money for several charities and therefore I need to be able to buy my jam jars as cheaply as possible so was really disappointed to see the cost of the jars on Quick Jars website – sadly they are well out of my price range. No need to process this recipe in a water bath Rachel! I’ve got a question: why do you leave it overnight?
Next day, bring the lidded pan to the boil and then turn down the heat and simmer gently for two hours – the peel should be very tender. I noticed this while incorporating the sugar so I added a Tablespoon of salt and a half cup more sugar and this made it more palatable, but not what I had hoped. When life gives you a bunch of limes, make lime curd! Can’t stop eating it! Thanks for asking that question – I too was unsure when to add the water. You cam use just limes, but I still suggest adding at least one lemon in the recipe. I noticed a suggestion for putting mint into it. Karen, It looks so very pretty, I just wish I liked marmalade! Any mid process tests or mid course corrections? Hi, I’m a huge fan of your recipes and also of Vivien LLoyd – I use her Jam & Marmalade recipes all the time.

We'll assume you're ok with this, but you can opt-out if you wish. This was my first marmalade I have made myself. Karen, Hello All .
veritable treasure trove of jars and bottles. That’s it for today, have a great day and DO let me know if you plan to make this (or any other) marmalade. I’ll probably keep the salt in future mixes anyway, but do you have any data regarding what is the culprit to overly bitter after taste; is it the membranes, the variation in rinds, the soak time?
Yes, oranges would work very well too, especially with lemons…..do let me know if I can help at any stage at all! Then I boiled it longer than 5mins since I didn’t have as much sugar as the recipe stated. Karen, Thanks Karen – have made yet another batch, mixing some fallen limes with tiny sweet oranges which fell off the tree prematurely when it was very windy this week, along with a lemon from my neighbour’s tree, which handily overhangs our garden.
I’ve been making marmalade for some years and this is the best I’ve made to date. They showcase the breadth and depth of her travel. I wondered if maybe that should be ‘warm the jars’?
