One lemon, 1.8kg of FairTrade sugar and a can of MaMade
Cost - £3.40 – around 40p for a 370g jar.
Bonne Maman [even on offer in Sainsbury’s this week] costs £1.68 for a 370g jar. This lot should keep us going till 2013!
I love the way marmalade looks so golden and glorious with the light behind it, with the shreds of peel held in suspension. It reminds me of amber! Speaking of amber…
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
Happy Independence Day to all my friends in the USA!
