Grandmother's Marmalade

Grandmother's Marmalade

From Sally

One fond memory I have of my grandmother is of her serving rice pudding in turquoise blue earthenware bowls with handles of the same material. She passed away in 1953, but her memory lives on in the recipes my Mom handed down to me (I still have the original recipe cards and the wooden "Recipe Outfit" they're stored in).

Here's a recipe my grandmother used (Smuckers doesn't compare!):

Orange Marmalade:

6 large thin-skinned oranges

10 teacupfuls water

5 pounds granulated sugar

Slice and chop oranges fine. Add water. Let stand 24 hours. bring to a boil. Add sugar. Cook over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Cool, then refrigerate to jell.
