Windall and Lenore from Evil Mad Scientist found themselves in a terrible predicament this winter – 75 pounds of free citrus fruit, and no way to eat it all. So, they opted for the route that many take when they find themselves with a plethora of produce – they canned it by makin’ marmalade.
“The first step is to peel the fruit. We’ve made lemon, lemon-orange, and orange marmalade, but you can use pretty much any citrus fruit.
We looked around a bit and settled on this recipe primarily because of its simplicity. It scales well. For a large batch, just keep peeling and cutting fruit until the pot is full or your hands were tired. You can also scale down–grab a couple of oranges from the cafeteria and you’ll make a lot of friends in your dorm kitchen.”
