* Can jam madness
Well, Tigress in a Jam has sparked a flurry of activity among online canners with her monthly can jam challenge (this canner travels too much and couldn’t commit but I love the idea!). January was citrus month and the results were amazing – 19 marmalades were concocted. Check them out. This project is going to amass an incredible compendium – 2010: Year of the Can Jam.
* Strawberry-lemon heaven
How good does this sound? Strawberry-lemon marmalade. Mmmmm. It’s by Doris and Jilly, two lady goats who are rather talented canners.
* Heirloom citrus marm
My next posts will be about the marms I make with some blood oranges and Meyer lemons I just picked up at Jean Talon market. In the meantime, check out this fantastic article on Grist about uncommon citrus and the writer’s own marmalade obsession.
* Hello, Honeybell
I love Eugenia Bone, don’t you? Love her book, Well-Preserved and totally dig her blog of the same name in the Denver Post. Here’s her marmalade ode to the Honeybell tangelos (a.k.a. Minneolas or Honeybell oranges) that she orders every year from Juno Beach, Florida.
PS: Although I don’t really buy into this heart-stamped holiday… To all the lovers (that’s everybody): Happy V-Day.
