Margaret Fulton is a cooking icon here in Australia.
For over 50 yrs she has been cooking in every Australian home.
I learned to cook from a Margaret Fulton book given to me by my MIL not long after I got married
This week, I am using her little preserve book to make lemon and lime marmalade.
I am away on holidays for 2 weeks at the moment but had a very busy week before I came away,
because I didn't want to waste this gorgeous fruit.
I love the yellow of the lemons and the green of the limes together.
It's nice when the peel is shredded quite fine, rather than thick
Part of the joy of making jams, is the colours, textures and shapes.
Aren't those little round balls just so sweet. I wish I could put them in a bowl for decoration.
They look just as nice chopped up.
All potted up,with pretty covers I made from scraps of fabric and lace.
I use these over and over,(that is if I don't give them away,which I sometimes do.)
A productive day and time for a welcome cup of tea.
These lemons and limes were only picked from my friends tree the day before.
Now that's what you call fresh
I hope you have a productive week too. I had lots planned for the week
to stock the larder before I came away.
What have you got planned for your week?
I will be joining the parties that are listed on my sidebar. See you there
