It has been too quiet around here. Since I got dunked in the inlet while fishing in June, lost my phone to the salt water’s powers, and no  WordPress app, I haven’t posted much. 

So now, new phone and preparing to launch epic posts. Prepare yourselves…

So we were gifted this nice box full of oranges. They are delicious, but even after eating on them for most of a week, we’ve barely made a dent. So today us Marmalade day and fresh OJ day. 

All sliced up and ready go simmer for 40 mins. 

3# 12 oz  of sugar is a lot! Candy in a jar.

Whilst simmering the oranges we made juice. And hade a math lesson plus economics for the oldest. 

Here’s Lil Bit making her own glass, totally self serve. 

She likes it. 

Here’s mine in a pretty glass of course. 

Now, back to the marmalade. I’m using Alton Brown’s recipe. 

10 jars of summer sunshine ready for winter’s darkness. 

And I whittled that box of oranges down to this…

So if you come see me this fall/winter I’ll share with you.
