I had promised the people at work that I would make buttermilk scones tomorrow for the meeting (made butter last night and had it handy)
but.... no jam. Welllllll.... we DID have store bought jam - but that would be a bit embarrassing now wouldn't it LOL - me the Thermomix queen.
Problem was... it is the depths of winter here at the moment and we only had oranges/mandarines/lemons. So... citrus marmalade it was.
I only did half of the recipe - and it worked out fine. Plenty actually for a jar to take to my parents in law and a nice sized small jar to take tomorrow and (modestly) say... oh yes... I just whipped it up.
But... to be honest... it really was as easy as "whipping it up"!
I cut up the fruit, put it in, set the timer, added the sugar, set the timer, taste it, pour it into jars - 2 minute wash was all it took to get the Thermomix clean as a whistle... sit down and read!
Cost? 1 large orange, 2 mandarines, 1 lemon and some sugar! Not going to break the bank!
