A Tale of Oranges and Lemons


We get loads and loads of oranges and lemons given to us. So Wednesday  I started out making Lemon curd. The recipe I used was one for the microwave and it was really very easy and quick.

Then having made that I turned to oranges and found a marmalade recipe for the microwave also. This was also very easy to make and it tasted lovely too.

I then tried making Orange peel in syrup.


You cut the peel into wedges and are supposed to thread them onto string, but not having string I used cocktail sticks.

You soak them in cold water for 24 hours


Then you boil them in sugar to get a syrup



And you end up with of candied curled peel which you use as a sweet with yogurt.

The oranges that I have left will be juiced I think.
