No, I'm talking about the juicy part inside!  All the pulpy juicy stuff.  Peel, tear off the white-ish pithy stuff, and cut up the pulp.

Clover made me do it.

OK!!  What I have proven is an inability to absorb the obvious, and that this is NO time to start a project which requires any firing of brain cells in sequence!  Maybe I could just zest a few lemons and manage to soften those this evening, but I'm not expecting much beyond that…

(Sorry about that folks, but the sun and the pollen today are evidently causing something to happen between the ears besides logical thinking…)   Help

FINALLY have a batch of this in the canner!  And is it ever GOOD STUFF!!   Happy Flower

Just made a single batch since I was deviating some from the recipe and was not at all sure how it would go.  We have enough stuff to make another batch exactly like this one, and that is what I will do.  Later.

Since the only lemons the store had the other day were not what I'd really want for marmalade, I got the best looking four that they had, then zested them using the zester around the ugliest parts of the peel.  The yielded exactly 1 cup of zest from the four lemons.

Then, I used the pulp from two of the lemons in the first batch.  Since it was zest only for peel, I didn't bother soaking it, just threw it in with with lemon pulp (something over a cup) and strawberries, then followed the recipe.

The lemon zest pretty much disappeared, but the taste and smell is in there!  Very good, indeed!!

Barely squeaked out 8 half pints, scraping the pan, the ladle, and the spoon!  Even the foam went into that last half pint, for immediate home consumption...   Fork
