Marmalade Malfunction

28 01 2010

I decide to make marmalade. The fantasy playing out in my mind was that I’d spend a few hours alone in the kitchen surrounded by sugar and fruit, then emerge triumphantly with some delicious, nutrious preserve to share with family and friends. It will be much better than last year’s efforts, I told myself, when I had thick black smoke billowing out of the kitchen and a pan of tar to get rid of.

Well, I spent a week in the kitchen surrounded by all things sticky. I eventually emerged with something that looks like marmalade but doesn’t behave as such. You can’t really spread it on your toast, you have to pour it. I never have that trouble with Hartleys.
